Kenya born, Irish by blood and UK resident, Ben Kane’s passion for history has seen him change career from veterinary medicine to writing, and taken him to more than 60 countries and all 7 continents. During his travels and subsequent research, including walking hundreds of miles dressed as a legionary, he has learned much about the Romans and the way they lived. In 2016, Bristol University recognised the research in his novels with an honorary doctorate of letters. As well as regularly featuring in the Sunday Times bestseller lists, his books are published in twelve languages. A million copies have sold worldwide. He lives in Somerset with his wife and children, where he writes full time.
