AD 98: The bustling army base at Vindolanda lies on the northern frontier of Britannia and the entire Roman world.

In just over twenty years time, the Emperor Hadrian will build his famous wall. But for now defences are weak as tribes rebel against Rome, and local druids preach the fiery destruction of the invaders.

It falls to Flavius Ferox, Briton and Roman centurion, to keep the peace. But it will take more than just a soldier’s courage to survive life in Roman Britain.

This is a hugely authentic historical novel, written by one of Britain’s leading historians.

Review

‘Don’t be surprised if you see Vindolanda in the starting line-up for Historical Fiction Book of the Year 2017’ Weekend Sport.

‘An authentic, enjoyable read’ The Times.

‘A well-written and authoritative novel that is always enjoyable and entertaining’ For Winter Nights.

‘An instant classic of the genre. No historian knows more about the Roman army than Adrian Goldsworthy, and no novelist better recreates the Classical World. Flavius Ferox, Briton turned Roman Centurion is a wonderful, charismatic hero. Action and authenticity combine in a thrilling and engrossing novel’ Harry Sidebottom.
