Time is no barrier to dreams.
Two Saxon boy soldiers become unlikely friends. One is fighting alongside his father protecting King Harold in 1066. The other is in a school re-enactment. Together at the horrific conclusion of the Battle of Hastings, 21st century technology saves them. The noblest Saxon rewards them. He has also escaped Duke William and his Norman knights.
A coin is dug up near the school. A gift is tested and reveals many secrets. These are only the beginning of the treasures uncovered and all the evidence needed that history has come alive.
