D. The milites want revenge because of the loss of the original IX Legion. Hadrian wants to visit Briton. He institutes a policy of peace within defined borders without expansion throughout the Roman Empire. Rome is in economic depression.Centurion Aureus Serialis is put in charge of a provisioning force in Edinburgh where he fights the first sea/land battle of Scotland.

After leaving Edinburgh and arriving at Falkirk, tribune Corvallis orders him to travel northwest to restore Fort Bochastle in Callander. This fort is a Glenblocker fort from the days of General Agricola and is situated between two rivers and protects the entrance at Leny.

Highlanders could use this mountain pass to harass the legion and forts in central Scotland.What promises to be a straight forward campaign, however, quickly becomes a proving ground as Aureus is forced to lead his men through the ravages of illness, the misery of a tempest, and the desolation of an unforgiving landscape. He pursues an elusive enemy named Galan.The author captures a daily blend of personal and military life within a Roman century.

The subjects of leadership, death, revenge, health and peace within a provisioning force are explored. The described landscape is telling for any reader interested in Scotland.
