Description

Flavia and her friends are on a quest for the Emperor Titus - to steal a valuable gemstone. Their travels take them across the Roman province of Mauretania, from Sabratha (in modern Libya) to Volubilis (Morocco). As they travel on a caravan across the desert they encounter slave-traders, pantomime actors and a wild animal stampede.show more
