Constantius was appointed Caesar and he prepared to reduce Britain and the previous usurper emperor Carausis to subjection. Before Constantius could reach Britain however, Carausius was put to death by Allectus, a new usurper in A.D. 293. Allectus based his fleet in the area of the Isle of Wight. Constantius crossed the Channel and engaged in battle with Allectus, who was killed in 296AD. Constantius recovered Britannia, which, after a separation of ten years, was once more reunited to the empire.
