  • Boudicca Part 2: Hares and Foxes Amongst the Wolves

    When Boudicca rebelled against the Romans, she knew exactly who to turn to for allies: the Trinovantes.

    Years ago, the Romans had taken over their town, Camulodunum—and made it over into a veterans’ retirement colony, subjugating the Trinovantes in the process. When the opportunity came to drive the Romans out, they seized the opportunity.

    But many of those living in Camulodunum were Britons themselves—some who had been enslaved, and others trying to maintain an uneasy peace with the Roman conquerors. Find out what happened when Boudicca’s army rolled into their town.
