Top of the page Setting Up 1. The Boudicca newspaper assumes that students will already have covered the Roman conquest of Britain and the reasons why the revolt broke out after the death of Prasutagus, king of the Iceni.
The activity begins with the outbreak of the revolt.
Set up your room, using large labels or notices to show the key places — Mona AngleseyLondinium, Camulodonum ColchesterVerulamium St. Using the Latin names adds a sense of difference and period.
Using a large room such as a hall or gym helps create a sense of distance, which is particularly helpful as Paulinus has to march back from Mona. Divide the rest of your students into groups and position them as shown in the plan.
You move the story on by announcing what is happening but also asking groups what they are going to do, offering them options and gently dropping in information or ideas to help them decide. Top of the page The Activity 1.
Now you have everyone in place, walk around the room introducing the groups and explaining who they are. Make a production out of it — bow low before the great Queen of the Iceni, salute the Roman commander etc. Explain that Paulinus is heading for Mona to destroy the Druids.
Announce the outbreak of the rebellion amongst the Iceni. Ask the Trinovantes - will they join the rebellion? And ask them why?
Who is closer to make life difficult for you i. The news of the rebellion reaches Cerialis, the commander of the Ninth Legion at Lindum. Ask Cerialis, the commander what he will do? What does he need to know to make the decision?
Not sure at this stage but may be out-numbered. Now explain what happened - Cerialis takes a body of legionaries and his cavalry but is heavily outnumbered — the legionaries are massacred and Cerialis and the cavalry only just make it back to Lincoln. The Iceni near Camulodonum Ask — what the Roman veterans in the city what they will do?
What will help them decide? They can see they are outnumbered but they are Romans. They have stone buildings to defend. Running is unlikely to save them with women and children and few horses.
Announce that Camulodonum is burned to the ground and everyone there is killed. Ask Iceni — have you done enough or will you carry on your rebellion? News of the rising reaches Paulinus in North Wales.
Ask Paulinus what will he do? Where can he get help from? The Second Legion is commanded by the second in command, Poenius Postumus. Ask Postumus what will he do?
His decision was to stay at Isca — thus leaving Paulinus without support. March Paulinus to London. He sailed from Mona to Chester and then rode ahead so he reached London ahead of his army with only a small force.
Ask — will he defend London or abandon it to attack by the Iceni? Manoeuvre the students into deciding to abandon the city.Reddit gives you the best of the internet in one place.
