The Corosolite tribe, who inhabited what is now Brittany, were prolific producers of coins and significant hoards have been found across Brittany, Normany and on the island of Jersey. This study is based around a hoard of more than 11,000 coins found at La Marquanderie on Jersey, but it is also broader in its discussion of the Coriosolite and their coinage. More than a mere catalogue of coins, Hooker' study looks at the design, symbolism, imagery and aesthetics of the coins and the social, cultural and religious traditions that influenced designs.

Book Description British Archaeological Reports, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Just over two thousand years ago, Julius Caesar set into motion events that would culminate in the conquest of the tribes of Gaul. It is to the coins of one of these tribes that this book addresses itself. The Coriosolites inhabited what is now Cotes-d Armor in Brittany. The tribe has left a large number of coins: more than 20,000 are recorded, and no Celtic tribe is so well represented. Large hoards of these coins have been found in Jersey, Brittany, and Normandy. Foremost among these is the La Marquanderie hoard from Jersey, consisting of over 11,000 coins. The La Marquanderie hoard forms the basis of this book. The further strength of this engagingly-written study is its appeal to a wide range of interests: it is not just a catalogue of coins, but a case study of Celtic religious philosophy and aesthetics, referring to such apparently disparate subjects as poetry, physics, and psychology. (The Appendices show all the flow charts in addition to an Index of Design Elements and a concordance between the author s coin numbers and Rybot s. There is also a Quick Identification Chart with which any Coriosolite coin may be classified in a few minutes.). Seller Inventory # AAV9781841714707
