The development of the Celtic Coin Index

Project start date: 2002-01 Project end date: 2004-12
The British Celtic Coin Index provides online access to all the records of archaeological finds from 1961 to 2001, allowing access to over 28,000 records and images of British Celtic coins. The original Celtic Coin Index at Oxford was organized by Celtic Coin Index number, a unique identification number indicating the year and order in which each specimen was catalogued. When Hooker & Perron built the Celtic Coin Index Online, they wanted the records to be easier to find, so they organized them within their own context. The coin records (within the broad divisions of British and Continental Celtic), are sorted Geographically by Region, then by Tribe within each region, then, in the British issues, by Van Arsdell numbers, which shows summaries of each coin, leading to individual detailed coin records. There are essentially two methods of accessing the information:by Region/Tribe, then Van Arsdell number, down to individual coin records -- done by using the button found on all pages, or by using search terms that will collect all relevant records for your search criteria.
