It's 355 AD.

Along the journey, discover historical facts, true tales, myths and legends surrounding the Romans, the Tervingi and Greuthungi Goths, their warriors, weapons, religions and customs, along with rival tribes, lordless mercenaries, bandit farmers and the daily lives of their women and children.
Dive in. Leave a comment or suggestion.
And stop by again.
This site--and the world of The Stone Eagle--grows as I do.
The Stone Eagle Series
"The day will bring pain," says the Master Trainer.
No one doubts his word. He will work his cadets until at least one of them drops to the dirt. Drops and can't rise again. Earns a ticket to see the Greek.
Someone has to be the first to fall, but shame will rain down on anyone who gives up before the young barbarian among them…
And Matthi the Goth is no quitter.

But what really happened?
