How fascinating! Do you remember the BBC series on Boudica probably 15-20 years ago? Alex Kingston played her. It was magnificent. Not sure if factual or not but even if it was close it left quite an impact!

No, I don't remember that series. I'm confident though, that if you enjoyed that then you will enjoy this book (which is available in paperback, by the way... In case that wasn't clear from the links).

The United States has 400 years of "history" - Wales has 4,000!

Indeed. It's just unfortunate that most people don't know even a small percentage of that.
