This special workshop offers the opportunity to work with Conservator Sarah Klopf to conserve real coins from the Seaton Down Hoard. Participants will clean a small sample of coins selected for conservation workshops. The coins chosen show the different mints included within the hoard, the emperors represented on the coins, and other variations.
The purchase and conservation of the hoard of coins was made possible by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Clinton Estates, a private donation by Patrick Long, and many contributions by members of the public.
Tickets are free, but should be booked in advance either online or from the Royal Albert Memorial Museum reception in person or by phone using a credit or debit card on 01392 265858 during opening hours: Tuesday to Sunday, 10am to 5pm
