His most famous work is Boadicea and her daughters. Boadicea was a Celtic warrior queen who defied the Roman invaders.
Boadicea is still considered a British folk hero.
There is a line of pricy fragrances named Boadicea the Victorious. One of their more highly rated offerings here. How pricy? $50 a teaspoon pricy.

There is a belief that she was buried between platforms 9 and 10 in King's Cross station in London, England. There is no evidence for this and it is probably a post-World War II invention...ReplyDelete
Did JK Rowling know about this when she wrote HP??
Quite the coincidence if she did not.Delete
