Ancient Coins and Gandhara
Workshop in the Ashmolean Museum
2.00-3.30pm, Friday 2nd June 2017

Dr Shailendra Bhandare will be conducting a special workshop for the Gandhara Connections project in the Ashmolean Museum, 2-3.30 pm on Friday 2nd June, 2017: 'Ancient Coins and Gandhara'. The workshop is intended to offer a hands-on introduction to Kushan coinage and other coin traditions important for understanding the art and history of Gandhara between the first century BC and the fifth century AD. All are welcome, but for practical reasons places are very limited, so please book a place by emailing us:

Priority in booking may be given to students or those with less easy access to the material. Note that those attending in person may be filmed: in order to bring the workshop in some form to the wider global audience that cannot attend in person, we are currently hoping to webcast and record the event using Facebook Live. Details of the webcast will follow in due course.

UPDATE: The recording is now available online via the project's Facebook page and website here .
