Animal furs for freezing weather | Rosemary Sutcliff Discovery of the Day

Cover of 1983 edition of The Eagle of the Ninth by Rosemary Sutcliff

Here is another cover of Rosemary Sutcliff’s classic children’s novel, The Eagle of the Ninth.

It’s the 1986 English edition. The cover shows the ninth legion marching with animal furs to keep them warm in the freezing British weather. I could do with one of those now! Some things haven’t changed in 2,000 years.
