We are honoured to have returning to the Festival, The Sunday Times bestselling historical fiction author, Ben Kane. His latest novel, The Falling Sword, has been described by The Times as ‘a master of Roman military fiction’. Nine of Ben’s eleven novels, were in The Sunday Times bestsellers list, and he has sold over half a million copies. In 2013, Kane walked the length of Hadrian’s Wall in full Roman military kit for charities Combat Stress and Médecins Sans Frontières, raising £19k. In 2014 a similar walk was completed in Italy. A documentary entitled The Road to Rome followed the walk, with Sir Ian McKellen providing the voiceover. Join Ben to find out about his research, writing, passion for history and an insight into the powerful story that surrounds his latest novel.
