The last of the Roman army have set sail and left Britain forever, abandoning it to civil war and the threat of a Saxon invasion. Aquila, a young Legionnaire, deserted his regiment to stay behind with his family, but his home and all that he loves are destroyed. Years of hardship and fighting follow, and in the end, there is only one thing left in Aquila's life--his thirst for revenge . . .

The Lantern Bearers is the winner of the 1959 Carnegie Medal in Literature.

400 CE. Set in a stormy period of Britain's history, a young officer named Aquila chooses to remain behind in Britain as the rest of the Roman legions are ordered home. He joins forces with the Roman-British leader Ambrosius in the fight to fend off the invading Saxon hordes.

One of the best books ever. I love all of Rosemary Sutcliff's work(except for the Mark of the Horse Lord)
