Over the centuries, others have added their own versions. Thomas Baker has given us an entertaining story which tries to tell the story as she might have told it, if she had been able to tell it. Myth or martyr? For me she is both myth and martyr. She rebelled against the Romans after a crime was committed against her family and her Iceni people.
Although Boudica was forgotten during the Middle Ages, her martyrdom in the cause of freedom became legendary in Elizabethan and Victorian times. There is archaeological evidence of her attack on the cities which can still be seen today. No one knows where her final battle took place, nor where she is buried. I admire Boudicca. She will always be a strong woman who is both myth and martyr for me.
Boudicca's history and that of the Iceni actually occurred in East Anglia and the East of Great Britain. Just about as far as you can get from Anglesea without crossing water.
I have found no 'Historical' references for Boudicca or the Iceni being in Anglesea. Particularly during this dramatic period in ancient British history. Though the Location of her death is not specifically known it was likely in the 'West Midlands (poss. Leicestershire) still a long way from Mona Insula.
As far as I can see the Author's objective in using Mona was because of its association with the Druids. But the discrepancies sprang out at me, since I already knew a general outline of Bodicca's history. And grew up looking at the highly inaccurate Victorian statue of her on Westminster.Bridge.
It's probably a miracle that Tacitus wasn't executed for his stories of some of the leaders of his time.
I enjoyed this book even though it seems for the younger folks.
I gave it 5 stars mainly for the content and since I got it for free, the price was right.
Buy and enjoy, you can always delete it.
