Description: Seeking a third panellist for the NACBS conference in Montreal Nov. 9-11. This panel will include research that addresses popular understandings of money and numeracy in England or its colonies.
Paper One examines how numeracy and the ability to count was a test of an individual's competency to manage their inheritance during the medieval period. Paper Two looks at how counterfeit coiners were treated by the public and how they crafted their testimony in court during the late seventeenth century.
Particular interest in currency/numeracy in Victorian or modern Britain, or the British Atlantic World, but would be interested in any potential panellists.
