The Ninth Legion marched into the mists of northern Britain...and they were never seen again.
Four thousand men disappeared and their eagle standard was lost. It's a mystery that's never been solved, until now...
So begins the story of The Eagle of the Ninth, set against a backdrop of Roman Britain and featuring a young soldier, Marcus Aquila, who sets off into the unknown north to find out what happened to the lost legion.
Following on from this are The Silver Branch in which two young soldiers uncover a plot to overthrow the Emperor, and the Carnegie Medal-winning, The Lantern Bearers which is set at a time when the Romans are leaving the shores of Britain and tells of Aquila and his quest for revenge.
This beautiful boxed set of these three classic stories is the perfect gift for readers young and old.

'This novel can be so many things to so many readers - an adventure story, a piece of historical fiction based on true results, a love story, and a novel about friendship. I found I had sympathy both with Marcus and with his enemies as they are all so convincingly described! Great for all teens wanting a tense, easy-to-read thriller!' (Sebastian Westwood, Red House)Book Description:
A beautiful boxed set of Rosemary Sutcliff's best-selling books
