Event - Cartimandua, Queen of the Brigantes (Sheffield)

Friends of Wincobank Hill Invite you ton Cartimandua, Queen of the Brigantes a talk about the book by author Nicki Howarth

This is the first major study of Cartimandua, queen of the Brigantes tribe in Northern Britain in the first century AD. Little is known about the tribal ruler, who fought off rebellion and civil war and managed to keep her lands when many other British leaders were forfeiting theirs in the aftermath of the Roman conquest of AD 43. Her story is one of power, intrigue, scandal and accusations of betrayal and yet surprisingly she is a figure who is often overlooked and marginalised in studies of British history.
