Leading lights

"We are the lantern bearers, my friend; for us to keep something burning, to carry what light we can forward against the darkness and the wind".
- Rosemary Sutcliff
This timeless line is from The Lantern Bearers, one of her novels for young readers about the centuries-long battle between Briton, Roman, and then Saxon civilisations.
