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, the one symbol that could unite all of the tribes together under a single Leader, a High King or Queen. 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. But 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.
