I have a few books which have been sent to me as well as a reviewer so I now offer these up for competition. There are 4 set in Roman times and one set in Britain just after the Norman invasion.

Entry form for this competition can be found here: Pot Luck Comp.

Competition will run until Sunday 28th September sometime in the evening (ish).

Bloody hell, 3 questions and I did not have to revert to google for the answers (hopes I got em right, but fairly confidant I did)

thanks to Simon Scarrow for knowing the roman questions, and a passing interest in the Norman conquest for the other one

Looks like they all went to Arrse, I might have to start double entry, got a diffo moniker over there ;)
In this instance that is so and ARRSE has come out tops - this time! Rum Ration has a good record overall though and have done well in previous comps so should look at this as a one-off.

AG, comment was tongue in cheek, with the numbers ARRSE has in comparison with RR, its really not a shock that they all went that-a-way. And as a previous winner I can hardly complain.


I got all the answers correct but didn't win a book?! :( Humph!!!
(Flicks hair, stamps feet and stomps off in huff).

SP. :p
Sweetpea, what an absolutely enthralling image that conjures up in my depraved old head
