Boudica was the famous, fearless warrior queen who fought for the British Celts against Roman invaders in the first century CE. She raised a huge army and waged many successful battles, but in the end was cruelly defeated. She will always be remembered for her brave efforts to free her people from Roman oppression. Suitable for readers aged 8+, each book in History Starting Points explores the life and times of a key historical figure, from Alfred the Great to Hatshepsut. It tells the story of the subject's life, using vital primary source material, such as what contemporary people wrote about the figure. Alongside this, each book builds up a vivid picture of the historical era in which the person lived, from Anglo-Saxon Britain to the civilisations of ancient Greece and Egypt. Included throughout are cross-curricular links to other key subject areas such as literacy, science or geography, and the text is supported by cartoon, myths and legends and fun craft projects to make.

This is a super easy book to read. The information about Boudica, the Celts and early Britain are laid out in an easy to follow manner with fun, interactive activities to try yourself. The images are a mixture between cartoon illustrations, maps and photographs. It covers many areas including housing, farming, beliefs and clothes. A great introductory book to the Celts.
