  2. I for one was delighted to see you were using a Rosemary Sutcliff story for schooling .... but a gentle nudge to you and any home-schoolers reading ... it is Rosemary Sutcliff without the 'E' you gave her. Mind you, you are not alone, see not just for others who have spelled her wrongly, but more importantly for all manner of posts about Rosemary Sutcliff, her life and her books. And the coming The Eagle of the Ninth film.

  3. Thanks for the heads up! I will rectify that.
