THE BOUDICAN REVOLT AGAINST ROME - In Ad 60, only seventeen years after the Roman invasion of Britain, the Iceni and Trinovantes of East Anglia and Essex joined forces in revolt against the harsh and oppressive Roman administration of the province. Their leader was Queen Boudica of the Iceni. With most of the Roman army away on campaign in north Wales, the Britons faced little initial resistance. The Roman cities of Colchester, London and Verulamium were sacked before Boudica and her warriors were defeated in a pitched battle against the Roman general Suetonius Paullinus in the Midlands. In AD 61, the revolt came to an end after the concentrated might of the Roman army descended on East Anglia. The war was one of the most ferocious ever fought on British soli, with no mercy given or expected by the combatants. This book tells the story of how the Romans coped with the most serious threat to their hold on Britain and explains the important contribution archaeology has made towards understanding the revolt.
