M. C. Bishop is a freelance writer, publisher, and archaeologist who walks, drives, cycles, flies, tweets, blogs, draws, and photographs Hadrian’s Wall armed only with a Creative Commons licence. He is the author of *Lorica Segmentata Vol. 1*; *Corstopitum: An Edwardian Excavation*; numerous dull excavation reports; and co-author (with J. C. N. Coulston) of *Roman Military Equipment* and (with J. N. Dore) *Corbridge: Excavations of the Roman Fort and Town 1947–1980* (neither of which are at all dull). When he grows up he will definitely get a real job.

An enjoyable read and I was not too shocked by the solution they found for their hunger. But then, Mike Bishop had provided a spoiler alert on Roman Army Talk. It tackled an uncommon subject in fiction in the German auxiliaries, their mutiny and Roman naval matters. I am sharing the information on purchasing the book around to friends who are interested in the Roman army and/or the Roman navy. Being a long time Roman army enthusiest, I did not mind the technical jargon-rather enjoyed it, in fact. The glossary at the end was good. I have Tacitus' Agricola so was aware of the incident as written there. Kudos to Dr. Bishop for writing a good work of historical fiction
