Skrócony opis: (tylko po angielsku)

The lecture presenting the most current and often not yet published, research in the subject is divided in two parts; the first one (winter term) is dedicated to Roman coinage and currency from Republic times until the fall of the Western Empire (3rd BC - 4th AD), the second one (summer term) - Barbarian coinage and its functions from Celts until the Migration Period, Scandinavian gold bracteats and early Germanic Kingdoms (3rd BC - 6th AD). Students, according to their needs and possibilities, can attend the lecture during one or two semesters. They have also a possibility to study and hold in their hands original ancient coins.

Coinage and coins are subjects of interdisciplinary approaches as archeological, historical, iconographical and economical source. That is why the lecture is dedicated to a wide audience: students of archaeology, history, classical philology, art history and other fields.
