    Summary

    Bedwyr joins the Companions of Artos.
    "On a wild night of late September, with the first of the autumn gales beating about the thatch, we supped again in Cador's mead hall, I with the great gaunt joyful head of Cabal on my knee... And the torchlight and the heather beer seemed the more golden for the triumphant knowledge of fine big-boned Septimanian stallions and the brood mares picketed within the ring fence of the Dun.

    Bedwyr, with dark smudges beneath his eyes - for the last crossing, with the Black One on board, had been no easy one- had come from his fairly won place among the Companions and sat on the harper's stool beside the hearth, and sang for us, or maybe for himself, the triumph song of Arwas the Winged after he slew the Red Boar"

    Summary

    An account of old Aquila's last battle : the Battle of Badon Hill, which led to forty years of peace between Saxon and Briton.

    Aquila is the protagonist of The Lantern Bearers, which tells how his father's Roman British farm was burned by Saxon raiders, how he was seized as a thrall, returned to Britain, escaped and became one of the High King Ambrosius's commanders against the invading Saxon threat. There he met Ambrosius's young nephew Artos - who we now know as King Arthur.

    When Ambrosius died, Artos took over as the leader of the remnant of Roman Britain, and Aquila went with him to fight at the great battle of Badon Hill, as the commander of what had been the High King Ambrosius's bodyguard. Thanks to Carmarthen for last minute beta reading.

    Summary

    "I liked to watch them so, for it seemed to me good that the two people I loved best in the world should be friends, that we should be a trinity; the clover leaf or the yellow iris, not merely three in row, with myself in the center."
