This is my first published work of fiction, a short historical Sci-Fi novella and a prequel to my upcoming novel, The Bondage of The Soil. 1st century AD Britain. The Iceni Queen Boudicca has rebelled and met the Romans in a devastating battle. Historians disagree on the end of Boudicca; did she meet a very unexpected foe? These pictures feature some of the landmarks and events in the story. https://margaretmcgoverne.com/the-battle-of-watling-street/

Gaius Suetonius Paulinus – Governor of Britain during the revolt of Boudica. He was assaulting the island of Mona when he received word that Boudica and her followers were on the march and had destroyed Camulodunum. He quickly made terms with the island and marched back to Londinium. However, there was no way to save that city, so he ordered it evacuated. At the Battle of Watling Street, Suetonius was able to defeat and essentially destroy the rebellion. Suetonius was later recalled by Nero.
