John Casey Numismatics Room

On 12th March the Numismatics Room in the Library was renamed in honour of John Casey (1935-2016) who has remembered the library so generously in his will. The event was held in support of the Library Fundraising campaign and an audience of invited guests, including a number of John's friends and former colleagues. The unveiling ceremony was held after an amateur dramatic event "Queen Elizabeth and the Twelve Caesars" which retold the (true!) story of the offer of coins to Queen Elizabeth I in 1561. The play was written and directed by Andrew Burnett.
