Description

Interweaving the stories of ordinary people caught up in momentous events CONQUEROR tells the story of a desperate battle to keep alive a prophecy kept by the last Roman left alive in the shadows of Hadrian's wall.

It is a story that begins in 600Ad and ends with the crowning of a new king at Westminster in 1066. In the years in between the prophecy is handed down through the centuries.
