The capricorn bracelet
Part of the Red Fox classics series
Rosemary's Sutcliff's absorbing collection of stories cover the fall of Londinium to the building of Hadrian's Wall, and the final departure of the Romans from Britain.
Set at the time of the Roman occupation of Britain, they follow the fortunes of one family over three hundred years.
All soldiers, they are linked by the Capricorn bracelet, first worn by the centurion Lucius for distinguished conduct, then handed down through the generations.
