An imagineered battle on the Isle of Sardonia between Legio II and the Sardonian Host of King Sardonicus III here:


The story is told by my customary uncomplicated and brief photo captions and personalities.

Always a treat. I look forward to further chapters from the ancient annals.

The ancient Roman historian Priscus Antiquus traces the origin of the Pettygree family to Julius Minor Pusillimus who established himself in Britannia and married a Briton Princess. The Pettygree clan has produced the very models of Major Generals through the centuries. However, for reasons that cannot be properly explained their stories are not well know to the general public. Your blog provides a very valuable public service in this regard. Advance the legions! Salve et vale!
