Frustratingly non eventful

Great narration but self indulgent story of nothing but imagined conversations with very limited action. Disappointing.

Rome invaids Britain

But the great names are partly peripheral to the story of Rufus and his charge, the Emperor's elephant! Jackson continues his run through the Roman Emperors (what a great way to learn Classical history). This follows on from "Caligula". Well read by the aptly named Cornelius Garrrett.
