The Battle of Cattreath is one of the great unknowns of early British history. A small band of men from the ‘Old North’ of Britain, the Gododdin, mount an audacious assault on the Angle stronghold of Cattreath.

Most of the information we have comes from a single poem, the Y GODODDIN, and it is this that inspires John James’ dark, powerful and original retelling of the attack. With stark prose and powerful description, James takes an almost-forgotten story and makes it real.
