Calling all armchair generals! Boudica's Last Stand.

Well, consider me wound! But who's Andrew?

You keep mentioning this - could you remind everyone what on earth you mean by it?

'Small raiding bands' captured and sacked Colchester, destroyed the 9th Legion, drove Paulinus out of London and burned the place, and then somehow united into one force only at the moment he confronts them? You seem to be suggesting you support this idea - why?

I don't understand this either! Could you expand it a bit? Why would the Iceni bring their families if (as I think the writer is proposing) they were preparing to defend their homeland?

It's a valley, but like you I'm unsure why anyone would chose it as the battle site. There doesn't seem to be any reason for a large army to enter it from the north-east - the only through-route looks to be the 'Harcamlow Way', running NW-SE at that point.

It's not on the way to anywhere, and it would be easy enough to bypass (which would be pretty embarrassing for Paulinus if for some unknown reason he'd 'dug in' there) - why would anyone be in that area anyway?
