Julius Caesar has conquered Gaul. Next will be Britannia, Keltica as the natives call it. The tribal leaders there are disunited, quarrelsome, and Caesar believes, can be defeated one by one, the strategy that was so successful in Gaul.

But he knows too of the Cauldron of Wisdom It is the one symbol that could unite all of the tribes together under a single Leader. It falls to Rhiannon, a Druidess to convey the Cauldron on a perilous journey to where it will be used in the choosing of the High King. She must endure deceit, treachery and many other dangers in the journey.  She is aided by Geraint, the Awakening Man, whose coming was long prophesied, and together they set out on a journey that takes them across the land now known as Wales and concludes at the - even then - ancient stone and wood circles of Stonehenge and Avebury.

More information about the story is here. A printed version of The Wisdom of Rhiannon will shortly be available, whilst the greatly revised e-book version is here.

The journey described can be followed today, and includes visits to hill forts, gold mines, standing stones, lakes and sacred sites. Currently it only includes Wales, with England soon to follow. All places are as historically accurate as a work of fiction allows. Background historical information about the the Celts, Druids, Hill-forts, and so on can be found through the link shown.  An extensive reading list provided great help in understanding the context of the story.
