Calling all armchair generals! Boudica's Last Stand.

Once he had stopped he could create a defendable position.

Has the concept of a prepared position ever crossed your mind? Generals do not do things in haste or by accident. 

I think Pauliinus knew exactly where he was going and where he wanted to be to exploit his cavalry and restrict the Britons' chariots. A bit like Wellington going over Waterloo and Quatre Bras the year before the major engagement with Napoleon.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, Merlot in one hand, Cigar in the other; body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!
