Thank you!

I recently read an excellent paper working through the reasons why hoards might be deposited in FRANÇOIS de CALLATAŸ, "Coin Deposits and Civil Wars in a Long-term Perspective (c.400 BC–1950 AD)" which is available on academia dot edu

Thank you for your reply
The book is bound to be interesting,since it includes such an extensive time period,but without wanting to sound sarcastic,i believe that the main reason one hides coin and jewelry somewhere is but one , to return at some point and collect them ! :D
