A CARAUSIAN BIBLIOGRAPHY

Late Roman Coins               Introduction                       Mints                     Web Links

The study of the reign of Carausius has generated a number of books and articles. The ones residing on my bookshelves currently include the following titles. If I were to recommend any I would have to say that Casey (1994), Shiel (1977) and Williams (2004) are perhaps the most comprehensive modern treatments of his reign.
