Archaeology can furnish little information on Armorican society in the middle La Tène, and coinage represents the only significant form of evidence for this period in much of the area. This study concentrates on a contextual approach to the archaeology of Armorican coinage, and provides an archaeological and geographical background in which the coins can be placed. De Jersey places Armorica in its historic context, examining the core/periphery relationship of the Celtic and Roman worlds, the nature of the coinage evidence, and the role of coinage in the Celtic world. He then presents a three-phased model discussing Armorican coinage finds. Two extensive appendices present details of the large number of hoards found in the region, multiple deposits of coins on temple sites, and distribution maps with full bibliographic references.
