Five Years on Pelion, Ten Years at Troy

Will Roberts

Minor Greek heroes, Epistrophus and Schedius, are left behind by their father when he goes with Jason and the Argonauts who are setting sail in search of the Golden Fleece. The two young heroes are left in a beautiful part of Greece called Pelion. They are under the guidance of Cheiron, who teaches them about many of the legendary Greek heroes. He tells stories of their bravery, their triumphs and their failures. Over time, Cheiron shows the two young heroes the skills of swordsmanship, archery and how to use spears for fighting. He prophesises that the two heroes will take part in the greatest war the world has witnessed. Firstly, they meet and make friends with Achilles and together the three go on adventures which lead them to meet many more heroes, to travel and to make many friends and engage in the struggles of warriors.

Will Roberts was born and bred in Newport, South Wales, and worked for twenty-two years at a small steel mill, making stainless steel and special steels. Upon the closure of this steel mill, Will was forced to look abroad for alternative employment and has spent the last twenty-five years travelling the world as a Steelmaking Consultant.


Having always had a passion for reading, and particularly historical novels, he decided to write a novel himself.


At this particularly time, he was working in Greece, on the beautiful Pelion peninsular, the home of the mythical centaurs, so it was no surprise his first novel was about centaurs and ancient Greece.


Five Years on Pelion, Ten Years at Troy was first published in 2016 under the title, The Last Centaur.


Being a proud and patriotic Welshman, Will's second publication was The Man of Gwent series, volume one. This comprises of a selection of short stories depicting old, often forgotten stories and events that took place in Wales and in particular, the county of Gwent.


Will also has a passion for sport and rugby and has, where possible, tried to include both rugby and steelmaking in this works.
