Boudica, probably the only woman ever to lead a revolt of major importance, has for centuries been a folk-heroine in Britain. She was a champion of freedom, a fighter for the underdog, a righter of wrongs. Popular imagination has her lurching into action in a chariot, the scythe blades on the chariot wheels cutting a swathe through the ranks of the Roman oppressors. The reality is rather different. When the legends are stripped away Boudica is a somewhat shadowy figure, though archaeological excavation and research has in recent years shed considerable light on the life and times of the Iceni, the people whom she led in what at first was a most successful campaign of revenge. Plantagenet Somerset Fry makes use of the-latest archaeological discoveries to build up a picture of our first national heroine, a woman with a commanding presence and a physique that undoubtedly fitted her to lead the revolt that was the climax of her life.
