The other side of the coin: The political life of the Gold Florin of Florence and its agents, 1258-84
The award of an EHS PhD Bursary was of paramount importance for the completion of my PhD. The bursary provided significant financial support during my writing-up year. It funded several trips to the Vatican Archives and the State Archives of Florence, as well as to the British Library and the Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale of Florence, where I could consolidate my research and finalise my thesis. The bursary allowed me to participate in the International Medieval Congress at the University of Leeds, where I could present the first outcomes of my research. I am extremely grateful to the Economic History Society for its generosity.
