The Celtic Inscribed Stones Project (CISP) has undertaken a collaborative, interdisciplinary study of all non-runic inscriptions on stone from Celtic language-speaking areas from the period c.400-c.1100 AD. One of its main objectives was the compilation of an accessible and comprehensive database of all known inscriptions. Data has been brought together in one place making it into a readily available and useful resource for researchers. New fieldwork was undertaken for the Breton and Channel Islands material by Katherine Forsyth, Kris Lockyear, Mark Handley and Paul Kershaw, of which the full results are available in book form: W. Davies, J. Graham-Campbell, M. Handley, P. Kershaw, J. T. Koch, G. Le Duc, K. Lockyear, The Inscriptions of Early Medieval Brittany, Oakville and Aberystwyth: Celtic Studies Publications, 2000.

The Project was a joint project of the Department of History and the Institute of Archaeology, University College London, under the direction of Professor Wendy Davies and Professor James Graham-Campbell. It was funded by the Humanities Research Board, the Arts and Humanities Research Board and University College London. All project records (which include a large collection of high quality photographs of the Breton material) have been deposited with the Society of Antiquaries of London (room number UM2a shelves 10 and 11) and can be consulted there; copyright remains with UCL and application for permission to reproduce should be made to the Heads of History and Archaeology.
