Amazon.com review:

"Simon Young invents a multi-generational family, part Roman, part Celtic—invaders intermarrying with natives—to tell the dramatic story of 400 years of Roman rule in Britain. Vivid historical detail is balanced by a real feel for the psychological depth of the individual stories. The narrator writes this “family history” in 430 AD, realizing the Romans will never return. He chooses 14 of the most interesting, but not always the most admirable, of his ancestors to detail. The big events of Roman Britain are all here: scouting for Caesar's expedition in 55 BC; the Roman invasion in 43 AD; Boudicca's revolt and the massacre of 70,000 Romans; the Pict attacks on Hadrian's Wall; the great Barbarian Conspiracy of 367; and the sudden cataclysmic departure of the legions in 410."
