A statue of Boudica stands in Westminster showing a brave Celtic Queen in a chariot with a spear in hand. For many, she is a symbol of British freedom and women’s courage.
Boudica’s story is found in just two accounts, by Roman historians Tacitus and Cassius Dio. Tacitus likely got his information from his father-in-law, who served in the Roman army at the time, while Cassius Dio wrote 100 years later. Some details of the story differ, so historians must look at both and draw their own conclusions.
