Working in Mexico allows Michael Small an opportunity to uncover ancient tools of man. One he discovers with Victoria Windemere is a startling discovery of a Roman sword, a commander’s sword. From the engraving on the sword it points out that the owner was the commander of the Ninth Legion. How that sword got to North America is a mystery. Follow the journey of a Roman vessel as it heads to Britannia and gets captured by a fierce storm and blown off course.
Go with the Smalls to Britain and walk the Roman Roads. Find the clues to one of the greatest mysteries on what happened to the Ninth Legion when 5,000 Roman soldiers, centurions trained in battle, disappear in a land that Rome had not yet conquered; a land where the Picts do not accept defeat and fight to save their land from the might of the Roman Empire.
