Britannia: A History of Roman Britain - by Sheppard Frere Ancient Places and/or Civilizations Geography Social Studies World History

Rome began its conquest of Britain in 43 AD.  The history of the "Claudian Conquest" - and the rebellion of the famous female warrior, Boudicca - is set forth in Britannia: A History of Roman Britain, by Sheppard Sunderland Frere.  The work is online, courtesy of the publisher and Google Books.

Modern writers use Tacitus and Cassius Dio as their primary sources for the Roman Conquest of Briton (and the formation of Britannia).  See Annals of Tacitus, XIV.31 (and following) for the story of Boudicca (referred to as "Boudicea" in the text).  See Roman History, by Dio, Book LX (for the conquest) and Book LXII (for the rebellion of Boudicca - referred to as "Buduica" in the text).
