The Gates of Rome

By Conn Iggulden

Published Jan 2005

On an estate just outside Rome in the first century BC, two boys share the hardships of a traditional education as they prepare for lives as soldiers and leaders, friends and rivals. Yet Gaius and Marcus have barely reached manhood when their home is suddenly threatened by slave riots and they have to battle for their lives before fleeing to Rome. Forced to make their own way in the most exciting city in the world, the young men waste no time in savouring all its temptations – and dangers. Brilliantly interweaving history and adventure, The Gates of Rome is the magnificent first volume in an epic tale of ambition and rivalry, bravery and betrayal, from an outstanding new voice in historical fiction.
