“I will take care of the body of my lord and you can carry the sword, story teller. For all good stories are about a sword.”
The darkest years of the Dark Ages. Britain in AD 597: a land very different from today. Divided into dozens of warring kingdoms - these are the birth pangs of the nation we know today. Life can be short, violent and brutal.
Cerdic, the nephew of a warrior, dreams of the glories of battle. When war comes for real, his sister is kidnapped, his family betrayed and his uncle's legendary sword stolen.
Cerdic is thrown into the struggles that will determine the future of 6th century Britain.
He must find courage to lead his people in one of the decisive battles of his time - a battle which could have seen the end of the English in the North of Britain.
