Boudica is both a groundbreaking new study and a surprisingly personal history that is a must-read for anyone interested in British or Roman history, feminism, or all things Celtic.Boudica has been mythologized as the woman who dared to take on the Romans to avenge her daughters, her tribe, and her enslaved country. Her immortality rests on the fact that she almost drove the Romans out of Britain, and her legend has become the reference point for any British woman in power, from Elizabeth I to Margaret Thatcher. As Boudica has become well known as an icon of female leadership and strength, the true story of her revolt against the Roman empire has only become more distant until now. Combining new research and recent archaeological discoveries, Vanessa Collingridge has written a major new biography on this shadowy and often misunderstood figure of ancient history. Boudica provides a detailed history of the Celtomania that has adopted Boudica as its earliest hero, and the nationalist and feminist causes that have also tried to claim her as their own. While tracking the origins and impact of the various versions of the Boudica legend, Collingridge unearths a historical woman who is far subtler but every bit as fascinating as the myths associated with her name.
About the Author: Having studied Geography at Oxford, Vanessa became a writer and broadcaster for the Telegraph, Radio 4, and ITV's Tonight. In 2004 she presented a two-day live astrological watch with Adam Hart-Davies on BBC1, a series on Scottish history for STV/Grampian and was one of Alan Titchmarsh's co-presenters in the major BBC TV series The Natural History of Britain.
