Glevum, AD 188: Despite the opulence of the evening’s banquet, Libertus is keen to return to his wife and a warm bed. But this feast has a finale to put any diner off his dessert — the guest of honour is found dead in the vomitorium. To Libertus’s horror, his patron Marcus Septimus is arrested on suspicion of murder.

It’s AD 188, and the wild, forested outskirts of the Empire is the last place Libertus, freedman and pavement-maker, wants to visit. But he’d rather face a wolf or bear than an angry patron, so he agrees to accompany Marcus Septimus to the garrison town of Isca (now Caerleon in South Wales). Pausing at Venta, the two men realise they’ve stepped into a simmering cauldron of social unrest, where the Silures tribe, loyal to former chief Caractacus, seethes under Roman occupation.

In Roman Britain, AD 189, every slave knows his lot in life depends solely on the morals – or lack of morals – of his master. Fortunately for one young Glevum slave, Junio, his owner, former slave turned pavement-maker Libertus, believes heartily in rewarding years of loyalty and service. Junio is to be granted his freedom in an elaborate ceremony at the Basilica Law Court. And what better moment than the manumission to announce the lad’s engagement?
