A laugh-out-loud comedy from popular author Sally Prue, taking a light hearted look at the clash of cultures in Roman Britain. After all - who would live in a hut if there were underfloor heating on offer...
"If they were Romans I was done for: they'd tear me apart, bit by bit, and enjoy doing it..."
When Lucan sees a legion of Roman soldiers near his village it definitely makes sense to hide. But hiding in a wagon could prove to be a dangerous mistake. And falling asleep in the wagon is not the best idea that Lucan has ever had. Trapped as a Roman slave, can Lucan find his way home... and does he even want to?
This hilarious book is packed with wonderful (and eccentric) characters and insight into life in Roman Britain.
Sally Prue isn't sure where she was born, but from the time she was adopted as a baby she was brought up in Hertfordshire. When Sally is not writing books she's often reading them. She has a set of Northumbrian bagpipes, but she doesn't play them very often at the moment. Which is probably a good thing.
