Not so Quiet on the Western Front? The interplay of temporalities, mobilities and identities in Late Antiquity between the Alps and the North Sea, Frankfurt a. M., 15-16 November 2017

"Im Westen was Neues" was the title of a conference on the interplay of temporalities, mobilities and identities in Late Antiquity between the Alps and the North Sea, held at the Römisch-Germanische Kiommission, Frankfurt am Main, on November 15-16 2017.
Holger Komnick and David Wigg-Wolf, from the IMAGMA team presented a paper with the title "Imagines maiestatis : Münzen als identitätsstiftendes Medium im nordeuropäischen Barbaricum", looking at the different ways in which silver and gold coins can be involved in and inform us about identity. Holger Komnick presented the case of Taman imitations of Roman denarii found in Alsace, while David Wigg-Wolf considered how gold, and gold-plated imitations were used as badges, or items of adornment in the Chernyakhov Culture.
