>Subject: Celtic Improvisations On-Line
>From: John Hooker <[log in to unmask]>
>
>I have just put up the last pages of the catalogue section of my
>on-line book "Celtic Improvisations" at:
>
>http://www.writer2001.com/improvisations.htm
>
>It deals with the coins of the Coriosolite tribe in Brittany, minted
>in 57-56 B.C. The largest hoards of these coins have been found in
>Jersey, C.I. The book is the most detailed typological analysis of a
>Celtic coinage in any medium, and is the first on-line study of a
>Celtic coinage.
>
>I have reclassified the coinage from Colbert de Beaulieu's six
>consecutive classes, to three mostly contemporaneous series. One of
>these series (Z) I have reattributed to the Unelli in Normandy. Each
>series is a complete issue, from separate mints. I have broken down
>the three issues into fifteen design groups and some sub-groups for
>ease of reference, but these further divisions do not reflect any
>intentions of the issuers. Like Colbert de Beaulieu's classes, they
>would have little value for any statistical analysis of hoard
>contents.
>
>This project is the culmination of fifteen years work, all of which I
>have funded myself. The wonderful thing about this electronic medium
>is that a work can be updated in real time. Thus I would be very
>interested to hear of the existence of any varieties that I have not
>mentioned.
>
>Other than a brief account of the finding of the La Marquanderie
>hoard, I have been unable to track down the original notes for this
>hoard. It is my understanding that most of the hoard was stolen from
>the Jersey museum, and to this day has never been recovered. I
>discovered one lead on some of these coins, and through Interpol,
>tried to track them down. Unfortunately, the trail went cold, and
>nothing more could be discovered.
>
>I also would like to know if anyone knows of any evidence of minting
>in the Unelli territory in Normandy, or on either side of the River
>Rance in Cote d'Armor, Brittany. This would include coin-blank moulds,
>or any traces of billon in crucibles etc. I am also interested in
>hearing of any British finds of Coriosolite coins (other than the
>coins and ingots from Hengistbury), especially if they have
>archaeological context, or were found in association with other coins,
>or indeed any object.
>
>For anyone that would want to identify a Coriosolite coin, I have an
>expert system at:
>
>http://www.writer2001.com/exp0003.htm
>
>Using this, you can find the correct design group, and then check the
>illustrations and text in the catalogue. The index is on
>improvisations.htm.
>
>Further chapters will appear over the next few weeks, and I am hoping
>to have a complete index of design elements. The methodology of this
>study is of my own invention, and I hope it will inspire similar
>studies for other classes of artifacts. It does demonstrate the
>thought processes of a few Celtic artists, and reveals some hitherto
>unknown tenets of that art. I am always willing to discuss these
>topics further and will answer any questions. Comments are always
>welcome.
>
>Regards,
