Noé Conejo is a Spanish historian and archaeologist specializing in ancient and medieval numismatics. He holds a degree in history and a master's degree in pedagogy from the University of Extremadura. Subsequently, he holds a master's degree in archaeology at the Universities of Seville and Granada with an extraordinary end-of-studies prize. In 2019 he obtained a PhD in archaeology at the University of Seville and the University of Lisbon with a thesis entitled "Monetary economy of the rural areas of Roman Lusitania". His main line of research is to reconstruct the social, economic and ideological sphere of ancient and medieval societies through the study of coins. He has participated as a researcher in numerous archaeological excavations in Spain and Portugal and he also participate in important projects, such as "Coinage and Metal in Late Roman Baetica" developed at the University of Seville to study the famous Tomares Hoard (55,000 coins from the 3rd century) discovered in 2016 near Seville. In his MSCA Fellow, developed in the Department of Cultural Heritage of UNIPD, Noé systematically analyses the use of coins in the funerary rituals of the ethnic groups that inhabited northern Italy in order to understand their mentalities between the end of the Roman world and the Middle Ages.
