Friends Presentation & AGM – ‘Symbols of health: coins and Roman Goddesses’ by Prof John Pearn

February 17 @ 2:00 pm 4:00 pm

Professor John Pearn presents an enlightening exploration into the numismatic world, where coins and medals are more than just currency – they are storytellers of health and well-being throughout the ages.

Why not come a little earlier and visit the Museum to see the collections of coins, sculpture, glass, stained glass, ceramics, carvings, lacquerware, prehistoric stone and bone tools, illuminated manuscripts and rare books.

Includes a light afternoon tea.
