The Celtic Warrier Queen Boudica, (also known as Boadicea and known in Welsh as Buddug) was queen of the British Iceni tribe and led an uprising against the occupying forces of the Roman Empire after the Romans broke a treaty and gang raped Boadicca's daughters. She burned Londinium to the ground and slaughtered a Roman army in 60 AD.


The grave of Boadicea, the warrior queen who fought the Romans in Britain nearly 2,000 years ago, was located by archaeologists under Platform 8 at King's Cross railway station, London. British Rail said they had just refurbished the platform and anyone wanting to dig it up would have to come up with a strong reason. And they did! On this day 21st February, 1988
