In AD 60-61Boudica the warrior queen of the Icini Tribe waged a personal vendetta against the occupying Roman forces in the East of England.
After haranging the British Tribes she led them on a brave mission to drive the Romans from the Island.
Her route took her from the Icini heartlands in East Anglia, to attack the Roman Garrisons of Colchester then on to Chelmford, raising these towns to the ground. Spurred on by her success she trekked her forces on to London, and then to St Albans, driving fear into the Romans and burning all in her path!
Finally the Romans sent a battle hardend legion to hunt her down and end her revolt.
Boudica has gone down in history as a remakable warrior and leader, driven by hate and passion, in September 2019, James will recreate her journey, trekking on foot from Norwich to London and then on to St Albans, finishing at the Roman ruins of Verulamium.
