The Emperor in Constantinople is hiring mercenaries to repel the infidel. Among them is the ruthless nobleman, Roussel de Balliol and his wife Lady Matilda. His obligations sit lightly upon him: his first priority is to find a fief. Only land will give him the wealth, status and power he desires.
It is upon Roger, attached to Roussel's force, that the story is concentrated. Through him we receive a vivid and vital picture of eleventh century life.
