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.
