Write a Review

Queen of the Iceni tribe, Boudicca, led a rebellion against Roman rule that is still remembered to this day. This biography tells the story of Boudicca, from her becoming the Queen of the Iceni tribe on the death of her husband, to her great battle against the Roman Army. Thousands were killed in these bloody rebellions, and Boudicca was finally defeated by the Roman Army led by Roman Governor, Paulinus. Through the story of Boudicca and her rebellion, readers learn about the Roman Empire and its impact on Britain. Looking back, we learn of the Roman invasion, the nature of their society and culture, and the legacy that they left behind. We look too at the discovery of Roman artefacts and writing, and how they have been used to construct a picture of the time. Readers will learn to draw conclusions from the evidence provided - a great basis for class discussions. History VIP biographies each look at the life of a famous Briton telling the stories of these Very Important People with clear, lively text. Amazing facts are added with feature panels and lively illustrations give visual information of the time and society the VIP lived in. With these key biographies students learn how individual people's actions have shaped the course of history. Key terms are defined in an easy-to-use glossary encouraging readers to use historical terms in their own work. Features include:
In other news - these panels give context and help readers to understand the society and events of the wider world in which the subject lived
True or False - questions lead students to question information and to interact with the facts they are presented with.
What they said - quote features bring the subjects to life using their own words!
WOW! - Boxes add humorous or amazing information to astound the reader and bring out the hilarious side of history
