The Encircling Sea (Vindolanda #2)
AD 100: Flavius Ferox, Briton and Roman centurion, is finding it hard to keep the peace. Based at Vindolanda - an army fort on the northern frontier of Britannia and the entire Roman world - he feels the eyes of his enemies on him at all hours.
Ambitious leaders sense a chance to carve out empires of their own. While men nearer at hand speak in whispers of war and the destruction of Rome.
And out at sea, ships of pirates and deserters restlessly wait for the time to launch their attack on the empire's land.
PRAISE FOR VINDOLANDA: 'An authentic, enjoyable read' The Times. '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 ... a thrilling and engrossing novel' Harry Sidebottom.
Adrian Goldsworthy studied at Oxford and became an acclaimed historian of Ancient Rome. He is the author of several books, including Anthony and Cleopatra, Caesar, and The Fall of the West. Visit adriangoldsworthy.com.
