These two women stand tall in Ancient British History.
Why is there so little known about their real names/real lives/real history?
I’m not qualified to answer that but I have an opinion based on decades of Mainstream History Teachings.
One was a Freedom Fighter. One was a TRAITOR!
One was “Queen” of the land of my Maternal Lineage – Iceni, Norfolk.
One was “Queen” of a much larger landmass – Brigantes – South Scotland down to nearly London.
Take the Woad, Jack. OK. I laughed.
P.S. Here we have a strange correspondence between Viking and Celtic – TATTOOS.
Did the Vikings tattoo themselves? Did the British Celts?
My Dad had tattoos on his arms (he was a Royal Marine) but they were all blue…(Imitation Woad on a Scotsman?)
My husband has tattoos on his arms but they are multi-coloured.
It’s only in recent times that tattoos have NOT been done in BLUE. Check it out.
P.P.S. I have no tattoos but when I was in Karachi it was Eid, the end of Ramadan, and I got a full Mehndi. Hands, arms, palms, feet, legs.
Anyhoo and moving on.
I love J.Draper.
