Boudicca (Boadicea) and Roman Britain
Boadicea is often regarded as the first British patriot. Her revolt in 60 AD struck fear into the occupying Roman forces.
Boudicca's Revolt (Boadicea)
BY DAVID ROSS, EDITOR

To understand what happened, you have to go back to the idea of client kingship. The Iceni tribe, centred in the modern Norfolk, had reached an accommodation with the Romans, keeping their own territory in exchange for not making a fuss.
