Queen Boadicea's glorious failure echos in eternity.





This is an enjoyable video documentary about Queen Boadicea (Boudica) presented by New Zealand actress Lucy Lawless. It is well put together and is fine to watch for all fans of this certain era of history. Boadicea is plugged a lot on this blog, but then she is rather special. It is strange because she lost - yet her impact remains - thanks to the Romans - a ferocious empire of egotistical people who immortalised their enemies to make themselves appear more victories in battle. To be fair, most of us are pleased they did in this day and age. The Romans preserved Boadicea's memory for us all. If Boadicea had won what would the world be like today? Her celebrity and glory comes from vicious enemies.

There are five parts to this so watch and enjoy...
