1066AD. Durwin Taeppere is an innkeeper who lives in Kent, along the Watling Street that links Dover at the coast to London, and things are looking dangerous: William the Conqueror has mustered an army just across the channel, and Harold Godwinson has taken England’s north to fight the Vikings, leaving the south defenceless. Now, with tension mounting, a pilgrim travels the Watling Street, bound, he claims, for Canterbury. But there is more to the man than meets the eye...

*Note* I wrote this quite a while ago as the first chapter to a full novel that never materialised. It is set as a novel because it is not anything else, but there will likely be no more chapters to follow.
