S. M. Porter's Novels
S. M. Porter writes archaeological adventure novels featuring a group of six teenage archaeologists who's curiosity often leads them to finding incredible historical secrets and sets them on dangerous adventures!
The Eternal City has history. Perhaps too much history. Founded in blood and flames, Rome rose from a small hill tribe to become the world’s greatest empire, whose influence laid the foundations of modern Europe. But what if history could be changed? What if events of the past could be replayed? What if Rome never was?
Spending October half-term in Rome, Suze, Mell, Sarah, Claire, Jerry and Simon were hoping to do nothing more than relax and enjoy the sights. When the unexpected arrival of Simon’s girlfriend coincides with the theft of part of an ancient legionary eagle from the Capitoline Museum, they find themselves swept into adventure again. For the eagle once belonged to Remus, twin brother of Romulus - the founder of Rome. In the wrong hands, it has the power to turn back the clock, changing the fate of the twins and ensuring that Rome and her Empire never existed.
