Know the value of beetle legs? Aware of the worth of red feathers? Familiar with tea bricks? Join us to explore the world of global currencies and trade and how different cultures have responded to the common problem of finding efficient ways to assign value and facilitate exchange. We'll be joined by two special guests: author Clara Semple, who'll be introducing the Story of the Maria Theresa Taler, and Dr Shailendra Bhandare (Ashmolean Museum) with a handling collection of unusual coins.
