A combination of historical enquiry, observation and fictional intrigue. Together with family, or accompanied by the mischevious archaelogist Vittoria, Matthew Spender encounters the Magus of Montecapraia, film makers from Rome, a funeral party, the leader of the local band and many craftsmen who still follow traditions that have endured for 2000 years.
