From cattle to polymers, or a different take on the history of money

On 13 January 2017, an open workshop entitled "From cattle to polymers, or a different take on the history of money" organised by the JU DSS took place at the Emeryk Hutten-Czapski Museum in Cracow. It was led by Mateusz Woźniak from the National Museum in Cracow.
In order to become familiar with a coin or banknote one must hold it in the hands. Watching it on a computer screen or from behind the glass of a museum showcase will not provide the entirety of impressions one can get resulting from being exposed to an object created to go from hand to hand. That is why the workshop format was chosen for the meeting so as to facilitate better familiarisation with the "weight" or even the "smell" of money.
