As the Roman grip on their empire slackened, groups of younger Britons formed secret societies to raise the banner of freedom. Most troublesome of all was the Druidic order which, as it changed under Roman influence, was itself in turmoil. Bradley has also written "The Mists of Avalon".

The first ten paperback Penguin books appeared in 1935 costing 6d each (the price of a packet of cigarettes). Since then the Penguin list has developed enormously, but still aims to bring the best writing to the widest possible audience. Penguin Paperbacks now range from Booker Prize-winning contemporary authors, to mass market bestsellers, with successful history, biography and general non-fiction as well.
