Calling all armchair generals! Boudica's Last Stand.
I know you've been taking as lateral a view as possible, John,
A little harsh considering I haven't posted my alien invasion theory yet!!! The slopes and topo are a better fit than Paulerpury, High Cross and Arbury Banks so i think it has to go into the "candidates to be tested" folder. I'm not sure why it would have strategic significance but the Mottes suggest there may have been some route or boundary at some point. At the moment I don't think it's a patch on CS or Dunstable but it might be worth having in the pot, for the northern scenario, at least to rule out.

but personally I don't go for the idea of the Iceni returning home and then heading off to attack Paulinus, which this scenario seems to require!
Personally I do, two major engagements, one huge muster to do Colchester, then a second to meet Paulinus for the end game, in between most go home whilst smaller units are running around creating havoc, panic and mayhem, with a bit of rape and pillage on the side. I think it's a scenario I've stated a few times now so not really worthy of the exclamation :!: :!: :!: I note Dunstable is a bit stuffed if the Iceni approach is from anywhere but the south :!: :!: :!: (bring it on)

So we now have three credible scenarios for the London and St Albans burning layers with remarkably few bodies;
1) The "parade theory", a column of 250,000 with carts following the roman road network and setting fires as they go.
2) The east/west raids, small units going cross country to loot and torch deserted towns.
3) The scorched earth policy, a new one but I like it.

Back toi the bunker for me....
