The Guardian has a series entitled ‘Secret Britain’,  several trips look interesting the latest  is the route that Boudica took on her way to ravage the towns of Colchester and London.

I would trace the first 40 miles marched by the warrior queen’s army at the beginning of the greatest rebellion ever staged by Britons against Roman rule.

So our indefatigable journalist writes, be that as it may, Norfolk Museum are promoting this walk to run in conjunction with the opening of their new Boudica gallery, which  has on show a replica chariot and the beautiful gold  Iron Age  jewellery from this time.


Part of the route the Roman road once took between Colchester and London. This section outside Hatfield Peverel, Essex.
