To set the scene - the year is 55 B.C. The Romans are beating a bloody swathe across the European continent. Any nation daring to defy them is swiftly and brutally crushed into servitude. Mighty Gaul has just fallen and Rome has set its sights upon a small, cold and rather damp island across the narrow waters of the Channel.
Now, with the Romans invading, it is up to three sisters to save their country from the bonds of slavery.
Smirgut - Magnificently strong, she towers over most men and then beats them into unconsciousness with a large club.
Dwyfuc - Exquisitely beautiful and irrestible to men, she is also very spoilt and something of a control freak.
And finally, Worthaboutapig - the youngest, plainest and undoubtedly dumbest of them all.
Gladiatress - A tale of three sisters against the entire Roman Empire. With a little help from the Gods, an emormous amount of luck and a really big axe - they just might be able to do it.
