Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi All,

For anyone interested, "Medieval Coins with Rory Naismith", a 47 minute discussion at https://www.medievalists.net/2024/04/medieval-coins-with-rory-naismith/?utm_content=291277370&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter&hss_channel=tw-142691943

“Because they’re so familiar, coins can sometimes seem to be a part of the natural order. But in the Early Middle Ages, just about everything to do with coins was in flux, from where they were sourced, to who was using them. This week, Danièle Cybulskie speaks with Rory Naismith about the complex world of medieval coins.

Rory Naismith is Professor of Early Medieval English history at the University of Cambridge, where his research focuses on economic and monetary history including coins. You can learn more about Rory from his university webpage ( https://www.asnc.cam.ac.uk/people/Rory.Naismith/ ) or Academia.edu page ( https://cambridge.academia.edu/RoryNaismith/ ) or follow him on X/Twitter @Rory_Naismith “

Thanks for sharing, @Broucheion. I'm thrilled at the prospect of a podcast with Rory Naismith. Never thought to see that day! 
I have several of his works, MEC & SCBI.  So I've queued up Episode 240 of the Medieval Podcast by Danièl Cybulskie. 


I used to listen to the podcast History of England, by David Crowther. It was wondrous getting history while commuting on mass transit. Oh, the joy of a smartphone!  It is the only podcast I ever listened to, and it's been donkey's years since I listened to one.

PS: The podcast was very much worthwhile. As it happens, Rory Naismith has a new book out, and it appears to have a central place in this podcast. The book is Making Money in the Early Middle Ages.
