A couple days ago I promised to post something fuller in response to the

request for resources on 4th c. Wales. Here is, as Nennius said, "a heap

of all I found" -- that is, a fairly raw dump of my own bibliography on

Roman Britain and particularly Roman Wales. I've sorted things out by

general topic and type of book, but haven't really commented on them. Some

of these may be easy to find, others may be fairly difficult, and there

may be excellent books that I haven't included here. This is simply a

listing of what I, personally, own (or in the case of journal articles,

have photocopies of).
