Archaeological students in Germany on an experimental dig found far more than they bargained for when they chanced upon the foundations of a Roman temple recently. Read more about it here. Incredible how these things keep being found. Long may that continue!
Been busy recently, tidying up the last edits of Spartacus: Rebellion. It’s released on the 16th of August, which is in 100 days. Exciting! Had a good night out 10 days ago or so at the fab launch for Anthony Riches and Giles Kristian’s new books, The Leopard Sword and The Bleeding Land respectively. If you haven’t got a copy of either book, get out there and buy them – they’re great reads!
Lots of great readers were there, including Nick Britten, Kate (@Wetdarkandwild from Twitter), Robin Carter and lots of others, as well as lots of authors. I even met Conn Iggulden! Some photos here. Best of all, my head was OK the next morning. Maybe I’m learning to pace myself. Managed to start writing the second Hannibal book (Legionary), but haven’t got up any speed yet. These things always take time, however.
