The following resources include only a few of the many scholarly works that have been written on these topics. We have chosen those you see here because they are relatively recent (or have continued as enduring classics), because they are published in easily accessible formats, and they are generally non-technical in their presentation. These sources will also lead you to many more popular and scholarly publications on these topics.

Most of these resources can be found through your public library. Other useful sites for locating many of these readings include the University Press of Florida and the St. Augustine Historical Society.
