Riassunto: 79 AD.

As he approaches the end of his life, Tiberius Claudius Cogidubnus, the native-born but loyally pro-Roman client king of Britain, looks back on the thirty-six years of his reign.

He recalls how, as a young man, he was seduced by the grandeur of Rome and the beauty of the written word; how he was befriended by the Emperor Claudius, and by the Roman General, Vespasian, later to rule as Emperor himself.

He remembers the difficulties he encountered whilst trying to mediate between the British aristocracy and Roman officials who were often cruel and frequently corrupt.

Most significantly he reflects on the Boudiccan revolt of 60/61 AD, which he tried to prevent, and in the course of which Britain was almost lost to Rome. Roman Britain. One man. His fate.

L'autore: Mark Patton (b 1965) was born in Jersey, studied Archaeology and Anthropology at Cambridge (1983-86) and completed his PhD at University College London (1990). He has taught at several universities in the UK, the Netherlands and France, and currently teaches with The Open University. He has published a number of non-fiction works in archaeology and historical biography. His first historical novel, "Undreamed Shores," was published in 2012. Set at the dawn of the Bronze Age (c2400 BC), it is both a coming of age story and an epic journey narrative. His second novel, "An Accidental King," was published in 2013, and is set in the early years of Roman Britain, telling the story of the British king, Cogidubnus, and his struggle to preserve the peace between Rome and the native tribes.
