A discussion between a Celtic and Roman man about the attack on Colchester by Boudicca. Boudicca and the Iceni tribe successfully defeated the Roman Ninth Legion and destroyed the capital of Roman Britain, then at Colchester. Key details about Boudicca's life and motivation for the attack are also given.
Children could role-play how Boudicca must have felt and explore motivation for the attack through role-play. Children could explore the key parts to a Roman town such as Colchester and the key buildings. This could link to them making a model of their own Roman town.
