The Lantern Bearers (The Roman Britain Trilogy)

Rosemary Sutcliff

The final of the Roman military have set sail and left Britain ceaselessly, forsaking it to civil conflict and the specter of a Saxon invasion. Aquila, a tender Legionnaire, abandoned his regiment to stick in the back of along with his kinfolk, yet his domestic and all that he loves are destroyed. Years of hassle and combating persist with, and in any case, there's just one factor left in Aquila's life―his thirst for revenge . . .

The Lantern Bearers is the winner of the 1959 Carnegie Medal in Literature.
