the Roman presents.

One day a room flotilla appeared of the island coast. Arrow Kyle island appeared to be under attack. The Roman fleet grounded itself at low tide on the very flat beach. A score of men heavily armed trudged over the wet sand. Phew from the village appeared out there on the wet sand is.

 

The armed men went as far as a small hillock. This was a sand hill in the midst the dunes. Rising slightly and fairly compact it barely stood above the dunes. On the slight rise the Romans stood and put their standard. A few of their men turned about with a large pole and attached various flags to it.

The Romans to take it all? Just like a thief? Stealing all the good work?

 

What should they do about it?

 

Should they resist
