The warrior queen's final resting place is unknown, but archaeologists are confident they can find it.
The discovery of Richard III's remains underneath a council car park has spurred on interest in archaeology across Britain, leading to further investigations aimed at locating the graves of other famous historical figures whose remains have been lost in the mists of time. The warrior queen Boudicca is one such figure, in around AD 61 she lead an uprising against the occupying Roman forces and destroyed Colchester, the former Trinovantian capital.
With a greatly renewed interest in archaeology and historical research in the UK it's likely to be only a matter of time before someone manages to figure out where Boudicca was buried. "It's one of the few fields where anyone can make a significant contribution with almost no background," said Dr Mike Heyworth, director of the Council for British Archaeology.
"It could be the year of great discoveries. Just weeks after remains found under a car park were confirmed as Richard III and archaeologists have reportedly stumbled on Alfred the Great, now the hunt is on to find Boudicca."
