The barbarians occupy most of Britain until they are driven back in 369. Two years before this event Germanus was posted from Gaul to a small fort on Hadrians Wall, Pons Aelius (Newcastle), as a punishment for sexual misdemeanours. There he falls in love with Juliona. Later he is transferred to Cilurnum fort near Corbridge, which is overcome by the Picts. Germanus escapes, and in the chaos he finds Juliona again.
