Boudicca: The Warrior Queen

By M. J. Trow

This is the story of British icon Boudicca: the humiliated widow of Prasutagus, who led British tribes into rage-fuelled war with the Roman Empire.

In legend, Boudicca is remembered as a mother determined to avenge her ravaged children and the warrior who rose up to protect her land. Many identify her as an icon of womanly strength. And she has even been described as Margaret Thatcher without the handbag. Yet what of the woman behind the legend? Did she really draw together a disparate tribal nation against a ruthless Roman occupier? And if so, how?

In Boudicca: The Warrior Queen, MJ Trow strips away modern and ancient myths to reveal the flesh-and-blood woman who terrified Rome. Taking us on a journey through the Roman archives, the archaeological record, and Celtic mythology he guides us towards a new understanding of Boudicca – the warrior queen who took on the might of the greatest power of the ancient world and very nearly won. It is required reading for all with an interest in British or ancient history.
