The first of a four volume alternative history of a Roman Britain in the late Twentieth Century and the conflicts between the Romans who deforested much of Britain as a source of food and the traditions of the native British. See also 1994, 1995 and 1996 Mann. In this volume, three young Romans flee to the forests and discover the older Britain. The novel stresses the cold rationality of the Romans in contrast to the more feeling British. See the note at 1982 Mann.
