Overview

Beyond the Wall is an historical fiction set in 170 AD mixed with a touch of magic. The Roman garrison in Northern Britianna has been order to move 20 miles beyond Hadrians Wall and build another. During the night a vital supply caravan is attacked not by Picts but a new enemy. The guard is called out to rescue the supplies lead by Centurion Antonius. After a brief savage fight the supplies are saved, yet a new element is added to the strategic situation the Jutes. Will this new invasion threaten the wall?

Centurion Antonius stands on the frontier of the Empire, beyond is the wild lands of the Picts. Our story begins with a storm rollling in off the North Sea. Taking advantage of the tempest is a raiding party of Jutes who fall upon a supply train headed for the Centurion's outpost. Sent to rescue the badly needed supplies Antonius confronts the raiding party of Jutes.In the ensuing battle the brother of the Jute king is killed which sets of a chain of events which leads to a conflict between the raiding Jutes, the Picts and the Roman garrisons in the North. Already stretched to the point of breaking the Romans mount a party to scout out what the new threat of the Jutes will mean to the Empire, the new wall and how they can deal with it. Who will win?
