NSI (NB) Regular Meeting

Celestial bodies often appear on ancient coins of the Celts and Romans, indicating their divine nature and sacred meaning for ancient people. Comets and meteorites on ancient coins help researchers to establish exact chronology of the events, and to the ordinary collectors these numismatic records of extraterrestrial events always draw awe and admiration. In his focus talk 'Meteorites on Ancient Coins', David Collins will explore the meaning and impact of the sky events on the life and thought of ancient people. A display of the coins will be provided to illustrate the talk.
