The Icenian wolf: legend and legacy book
What Hollywood will make of the life and times of the flame-haired, 1940year-old rebuffer of Romans is anyone’s guess. A Celtic Madonna, perhaps, with great muscle tone and a weirdo religion? A proto-feminist as ballsy as Germaine Greer but handier with spears? A skimpily-clad anti-slavery Xena, Warrior Princess, with cross-demographic appeal to rad-fems and FHM softporn fetishists?
