Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Great Conspiracy is a term given to a year-long war that occurred in Roman Britain near the end of the Roman occupation of the island. The historian Ammianus Marcellinus described it as a barbarica conspiratio that capitalized on a depleted military force in the province brought about by Magnentius' losses of the Battle of Mursa Major after his unsuccessful bid to become emperor. Theodosius returned to Rome a hero, and was made senior military advisor to Valentinian I. A decade later, his son became emperor. The Romans were able to end much of the chaos, though raids by all of the people listed above did continue. Fictional accounts of the Great Conspiracy were featured in Wallace Breem's historical novel Eagle in the Snow, Stephen R. Lawhead's fantasy novel Taliesin, and Jack Whyte's historical novel, The Skystone.
