The year is AD 50
Seven years after invading Britain the Romans advance into Cymru, the western peninsula, to mine her rich mineral deposits of gold, copper and lead.
The local tribes don’t take kindly to this invasion.
Led by their priestly class, the Druids, the people of Cymru rebel against the might of the Eagle.
The Roman Emperor, Claudius, perceives Druids as a dangerous menace to the expansion of the Empire.
Resistance will not be tolerated.
He orders their extermination.
