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