On the back cover:

In AD 60, only seventeen years after the Roman invasion of Britain, the Iceni and Trinovantes of East Anglia and Essex joined forces in revolt against the harsh and oppressive Roman administration of the province. Their leader was Queen Boudica of the Iceni. With most of the Roman army away on campaign in Wales, the Roman cities of Colchester, London and Verulamium were sacked before Boudica and her warriors were defeated in the Midlands. This book tells the story of how the Romans coped with the most serious threat to their hold on Britain and explains the important contribution archaeology has made towards understanding the revolt. Dr Paul R. Sealey works in the archaeology department of Colchester Museum. He has served on the council of the Essex Society for Archaeology and History and he was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1995.
