Whatever the fact and the fiction, Boudica was the original embodiment of Girl Power! She stood against the might of the Roman Emperor, Nero, uniting the disparate tribes of East Anglia under her banner. But in the end, was she really buried under platform 10 at Kings Cross? An entertaining romp through a little bit of Roman Britain, illuminated by Richard Brassey's meticulous research, interesting illustrations and super speech bubbles. History has probably never been quite so accessible, fun and interesting.

This book, designed for children, makes history understandable thanks to distinctive illustration, clear but informative text and a splash of humour.'
