Reader's note

This is the story of a boy who lived at the time of the first real Roman invasion of Britain. Julius Caesar had visited this island before, but largely as a means of obtaining information about it. However, in AD43 the Emperor Claudius sent his general, Aulus Plautius, to do the job properly! Now, the British people with whom Aulus Plautius had the most trouble were the Belgae, a warlike group of tribes who had only recently come from Gaul themselves, and so already knew something of Roman methods. The boy-hero of this tale, Gwydion, is one of these Belgae. His father is a farmer near Colchester, though when he is needed he forms one of the war-band of the young Belgic king, Caratacus. This is a story of battle and treachery, but at the end you will see the point the tale tries to make is that it doesn't matter what colour your hair is, or what language you speak. The important thing is what sort of person are you. This is a fabulous piece of historical fiction with a lesson that remains relevant.
