Read Manda Scott’s short story


This month we’re giving you the chance to read a free short story from one of Britain’s best loved historical novelists.


Manda Scott is the author of the acclaimed Boudica: Dreaming series, which is set in the turbulent years of Boudica’s revolt against Rome. Her most recent book is Rome: The Emperor’s Spy – a historical thriller that takes place in the early years of Christianity.

To coincide with the feature in our October issue about Roman Britain, Manda has written a short story for us, available exclusively online. Her tale, The Last Roman in Britain, imagines what would have happened if the Boudican revolt had been successful.
