Carausius Coins| Rosemary Sutcliff Discovery of the Day

David Urbach commented on the Rosemary Sutcliff Facebook site in July about a story which relates to Rosemary’s Roman historical novel The Silver Branch.

An amateur treasure hunter finds huge hoard of Roman coins bearing the image and name of Carausius (d. 293), the naval captain who made himself emperor of Britain and features prominently in Sutcliff’s book, the second in her “Roman trilogy”!
