This is a story - perhaps the story - of the struggle for survival of the little pocket of Roman civilisation left in Britain - as it is now - when the Western Roman Empire was crumbling into dust; an epic story, woven around the personalities we know as King Arthur, the bravest of the brave, Uther Pendragon, and Merlin, the wisest of the wise. We see this epoch through the experiences of different personalities at the centre of these events which shook the world as they knew it, and recounted for us by the careful, accurate pen of Gildasius, the narrator and note taker, the secretary to the great. Firmly based on historical fact and contemporary sources, Virgilio Campos combines the excitement of the historical novel with a new and penetrating examination of a dark period of human history. Closely linked to The Valkyries is Virgilio Campos' fictional work of the same period, Intimate Memories of Flavius Marcellus Aetius.
