Philippe Schiesser forwarded this information about a new book.
The colloquium NUMISMATIQUE ET ARCHÉOLOGIE EN POITOU-CHARENTES took place in the Museum Bernard d'Agesci in Niort the 7 and 8 December 2007.
It covers from the Drachms and Stators Picto-santon up to the money made of the metal (Bronze) of the bells during the French Revolution. This book regroups 15 studies unpublished covering 20 centuries of production and monetary circulation in the French Poitou-Charentes region.
Seven of the contributions are concerning the Melle production centre (under the Merovingians and the Carolingians) and the Montreuil-Bonnin production centre (13th and 14th Centuries). Archives documents, metal analysis and archaeological data complete each other to enrich and renew our knowledge on these major sites for the French national and regional monetary histories.
