Hugely authentic historical fiction series set near Hadrian's Wall, from leading British historian Adrian Goldsworthy.
Adrian Goldsworthy studied at Oxford, where his doctoral thesis examined the Roman army, and became an acclaimed historian of Ancient Rome. He is the author of numerous books, including Caesar, The Fall of the West, Pax Romana, and most recently Hadrian's Wall. Brigantia completes the trilogy of novels about Flavius Ferox including Vindolanda and The Encircling Sea. He is currently working on a new trilogy of Roman stories.
'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
