Event details

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.

Archaeologist Barry Crump of the University of York highlights how some old objects became more interesting after they stopped being useful for their original purpose. How people treated coins when they went out of circulation, or what people did with pottery after it was broken, can make us rethink how we understand these objects.

Don’t miss the handling table following Barry’s talk.
