Beric the Briton: A Story of the Roman Invasion, by G.A. Henty, tells the story of Beric, the young Briton chieftan. Beric and his fellow tribesmen bristle under Roman rule during the reign of the tyrant emperor Nero. When Boadicea, queen of a powerful tribe of Britons, is disgraced by the Roman authorities, the Britons join together in rebellion. Can the Britons overcome their powerful Roman masters? When Beric is taken to Rome, will he ever return to his homeland? This book features some of the earliest events and people recorded in British history, the spectacle of the gladiators, the burning of Rome, and illustrates why Nero was loved by some but despised by many.
