Outcast by Rosemary Sutcliff

Saved from drowning as an infant, Beric, a Roman, is raised by Celts. Eventually the tribe decides to force him out. He ends up a slave in Rome. He escapes only to be sent to the galleys. Eventually finding his way back to Britain, he must find his own place among his people… whoever they might really be.

Much of Outcast was good. It dragged on occasion, however. I recommend it for those interested in the time period.
