Prologue - Spring, 1801
The man they called ╘Teacher╒ looked out through the grimy, smeared window of the classroom, shielding his eyes from the glare of the morning sunshine, staring across to where the young boy knelt. He watched as the boy took the twig in his right hand and carefully etched the squares onto the dusty floor of the playground. He had observed the same behaviour for the last week or so. Each morning at first break the boy would sweep away the lines and numbers from the previous day and score out a fresh playing area. Then he would take a favoured stone from his waistcoat pocket and throw it towards the first of the squares, signalling the start of the game.
