Map of Carolingian Coin Hoards (AD 751-987) in OpenWebGIS

Information of Carolingian Coin Hoards was taken from The Digital Atlas of Roman and Medieval Civilization (DARMC).

Abstract: "This geodatabase is a digital edition of the data provided in Simon Coupland's 2011 "A Checklist of Carolingian Coin Hoards 751-987," which gives a comprehensive summary description of hoards containing more than three coins issued by the Carolingian dynasty and found in Europe up to the date of publication. DARMC contributors have expanded Dr. Coupland's work by adding geographic coordinates to hoard findspots and coding numeric fields to facilitate the spatial and quantitative analysis of this data. This dataset is not exhaustive of the information from Coupland 2011 and careful attention should be paid to the additional notes in the original study."

Instruction on how to work with the map:

1. Notation in the legend of the Layer of Carolingian Coin Hoards: "COINS_MX" is maximum number of coins in hoard. Each point (hoard) is labeled with the find year.
Figure 2.

2. To get information about each hoard(point), select Layer’s name ‘CarolingianHoards’ in the combobox (list) “Editable Layer”. Look at the Figure 3.
Figure 3.

3. Then click on the point you are interested in and you must get the result like in Figure 4. The values of all attributes of each hoard you can see by hovering the cursor over it and clicking on it (if while hovering over a polygon, it is not activated, then move the map a little bit and then again hover the cursor).

Figure 4.

4. You can create a chart that shows an amount of coins in each hoard by name. To do it, click on the menu item “Edit->Open attribute table”. After that window will open like in Figure 5. Select attribute for X and Y axies like in this figure 4 and click button “Create Chart”
