Do come and meet him and have a glass of wine !! This event will start at 6.30pm on Thursday 17th August, so keep the date free !! (We’re just outside Kew Garden Tube Station)

‘VINDOLANDA’

A novel set in Roman Britain at the very end of the first century AD.

Vindolanda is the first adventure for Titus Flavius Ferox, centurion of Legio II Augusta and a man torn between two worlds. His grandfather was one of the great chiefs and war leaders of the Silures, the tribe living in what is now South Wales. For over twenty years he fought the Romans, but in the end he and the rest of his people were beaten down and became subjects of the empire.

The first novel begins in AD 98, at the start of the reign of the Emperor Trajan – In Britannia the garrison is run down and the army and empire appear to be in retreat. Men claiming to be druids and holy men are abroad, preaching hatred and war against an empire they claim is dying.

At the same time there are rumours of traitors inside the Roman army, and the peace that has always been fragile now looks ready to crumble into dust. Unsure who can be trusted, and confronted by fanatics given to torture and human sacrifice, Ferox must do his best to stop the north – and perhaps all of Britannia – from plunging into chaos and slaughter.
