Andy Fear's talk looks at the rise and fall of the Icenian Queen Boadicea's uprising against Rome. It argues that this should not be seen as a "revolt".
It also tackles some of the modern mythology that has grown up around Boadicea such as the "Battle of Watling Street" which is a modern fiction and suggests that she was a better tactician and strategist than she is often given credit for.
All are welcome and a lively evening is guaranteed! Zoom details will be sent on the day. Thanks.
