4.0 out of 5 stars Good, Educational but Not Overly Exciting

A good book about the adventures of a Celtic prince taken captive by the Romans in 84AD and used as a hostage as they build the Stanegate road just south of what would later be Hadrian's wall.

This would be a good historical account for primary school children studying the Romans in school. As an adventure it was lacking though. Some stuff happened but this was more a series of things that happened than an engaging story. Most children will probably prefer Caroline Lawrence's "Roman Mysteries", although this one backs a lot of good educational content into a small space.

My son loves all history and has a lot in this range. My son is thirteen and they are a perfect read for teenagers. My son doesn't like reading but he will read these books
