Boudica Britannia: Rebel, War-leader and Queen
Pearson Longman, 2006 - Всего страниц: 286
"'[This] book is a jolly good read...lively, confident and [filled with] thought-provoking parallels with modern times [...]Professor Aldhouse-Green is well equipped to do justice to the fearsome warrior queen of the Britons who so nearly brought the story of Roman Britain to a premature end. This important study of Boudica not only makes full use of recent archaeological and classical scholarship, it also offers exciting new psychological insights into the first woman to make a significant impact on the history of Britain'."
"Dr Paul R. Sealey, Assistant Curator of Archaeology, Colchester Museums"
When Roman troops threatened to seize the wealth of the Iceni people, their queen, Boudica, retaliated by inciting a major uprising, allying her tribe with the neighbouring Trinovantes. The ensuing clash is one of the most important - and dramatic - events in the history of Britain, standing testament to what can happen when an insensitive colonial power meets determined resistance from a subjugated people head-on.
In this fascinating account of a legendary figure, Miranda Aldhouse-Green raises questions about female power, colonial oppression, and whether Boudica would be seen today as a freedom fighter, terrorist or martyr.
