AD 61, Roman occupied Britain. The Iceni Queen Boudicca leads an uprising of 100,000 Brittonic tribesmen and women against the Roman held provinces of Londinium, Verulamium, and Camulodunum, leaving a trail of destruction in their wake.
A QUEEN ON THE RUN...
They face the legions of Roman Governor Suetonius for a decisive showdown, close to the ancient Watling Street. History records that the Romans annihilated the local tribes, leaving the few remaining survivors to scatter and die as they might.
AN ENDURING MYSTERY...
The Iceni tribe and their notorious queen are then lost to history; did they flee to Wales or across the sea? Or did they stumble across another foreign visitation from a land very far from Britain?
