Halesworth: Ancient adventure story for author’s fourth children’s book

Self-published children's author Angela Taylor has just released her new book, Centurion's Gold.

A self-published children’s author is hoping young readers will dig her new adventure.

Angela Taylor, from Halesworth, has just released a new book, Centurion’s Gold, which tells the tale of nine-year-old Izzy and her 11-year-old brother Josh, who go to stay on their grandmother’s farm in the Northumberland hills, alongside Hadrian’s Wall, where they help an archaeologist look for a Roman fort.

The story is partly inspired by the 68-year-old’s daughter, Mary-Anne, who is the basis for the archaeologist character.

Mrs Taylor, who travelled north to research the book last year, said: “The prologue is set in Roman times, setting the scene for the children to find the centurion’s gold.

“It was a lovely story to write. There is a bit of artistic license about where the fort would have been, but readers can actually go and see the excavated sites and museum exhibits for themselves.

Centurion’s Gold is available online, along with Mrs Taylor’s other books, Guardian of the Key, The Southwold Adventure and Finch.
