“Ciphers from the past” – a film presenting the results of an international research team

Category: III.3.2, Results

As part of Action III.3.2 “Promotion of scientific research in the public domain”, the team headed by Professor Aleksander Bursche prepared a bilingual film entitled “Ciphers from the past – IMAGMA”.

An international team of archaeologists, numismatists, chemists, and physicists carried out research on the beginnings of minting in early medieval Europe. The project “IMAGMA: Barbarian Coins, Power Elites and the Birth of Europe” included researchers from the University of Warsaw and the German Archaeological Institute (DAI).

The project resulted in a film to popularise the research results: the roots of Germanic money should be moved at least two centuries back, to the second half of the 3rd century, and located in other territories – areas of western Ukraine.
