You could discuss with students how much the impressive life of this one woman can tell us about the whole range of people known as the Celts. Do the actions of Boudica prove that any woman in any of the Celtic tribes could become a warrior? It would also be interesting to think about the role that status played in her life – could any woman, rich or poor, have become a leader of the Iceni tribe?
This book is for younger readers (aged 8–9) but is a concise and helpful study of Boudica’s life.
