Emmanuel's Dream by Laurie Ann Thompson. Born in Ghana, West Africa, with one deformed leg, Emmanuel was dismissed by most people--but not by his mother, who taught him to reach for his dreams. As a boy, he hopped to school more than two miles each way, learned to play soccer, left home at age 13 to provide for his family, and, eventually, became a cyclist. He rode an astonishing 400 miles across Ghana in 2001, spreading his powerful message that disability is not inability. (05-06-2015)

Celtic Warrior Queen Boadicea - one of the most amazing women in history. (played by Alex Kingston)

Stonehenge: The Last Resting Place of Boadicea?

Statue of Boudica, Westminster Bridge, London. Boudica, also known as Boadicea or Buddug (d. AD 60 or 61) was queen of the British Iceni tribe who led an uprising against the occupying forces of the Roman Empire.

Queen Boudica (d. 60/61 AD) was queen of the British Iceni tribe who led a revolt against occupying forces of the Roman Empire. Upon her husband's death, the Empire annexed her state, publicly flogged her, and raped her daughters. She razed Londinium (modern day London), Verulamium (St Albans) and Camulodunum (Colchester), causing Nero to briefly consider withdrawing Roman control from Britain. Boudica was eventually defeated by Suetonius and either killed herself or died of illness.
