Ongoing Projects

We are currently working on a number of collaborative projects, from public engagement to citizen science. As work develops, we'll be adding information about these projects here.  

MicroPasts: Die-matching the Durotriges

We have collaborated with our project partner Dr John Talbot, Professor Andy Bevan (UCL) and undergraduate students at the Institute of Archaeology (UCL) to create a new crowdsourcing project on the MicroPasts platform. Through this MicroPasts project, members of the public can participate in a die-study of Durotrigan coinage. For more information, or to take part in the study, look for projects mentioning ‘Durotriges' in the following section on MicroPasts.

Public Engagement with Research: More than Money (2020–2021)

Thanks to a grant from the University of Oxford, we undertook a Public Engagement with Research (PER) project, which finished in May 2021. 

 

The introduction of coins is seen as marker of change in Iron Age society in Britain. It is easy to see these early coins as equivalent to today’s money, but current research challenges this assumption. Through the resources created by the More than Money project, you can learn how coins were made, the history of their use in Britain via a factsheet, and explore different Iron Age coin iconography through various imaging techniques. Drawing on research by the CCID team, we will inspire audiences to think about how coins were used and what this tells us about society in Iron Age Britain.
