Overview

Amazingly, although her name once held historians captive, Boudicca -- a Celtic queen born around the time of Christ, who assembled one of the most formidable forces ever to counter the Roman Empire -- has since fallen through the cracks of ancient history. Beaten senseless, her daughters raped by the brutish Romans, Boudicca somehow managed to assemble a vanguard against her oppressors, and thus became a symbol of British resistance for millennia. Classical scholars are less certain of how this one poor and tortured woman realized such an impressive feat. By reconstructing the period in which she lived and fought, the documentary Decisive Battles: Boudicca -- Warrior Queen goes behind the myth and the legend to investigate the historical truths surrounding this strange and enigmatic symbol of heroism.
