So was I (joking, I mean), but it's fun to tease! To truly be equaj, women would need to have another four ounces of brain to come near to the capability of men.
Women don't go to war? Joan of Arc, Boudicca, the Amazons?.....

Ron.

Nah, the extra weight isn't in our skulls, it's below the belt  ::)

Only to protect themselves and their tribe or country; Boudica and the Iceni against the war keen Romans who had betrayed the trust and friendship with the Celtic tribe and humiliated Boudica and her daughters; Joan of Arc against the invading and hostile English, and seen by many as being manlike anyway, one reason why she was burnt at the stake.

As for The Amazons, they only exist in Greek mythology, and even then it is believed by scholars that if they existed at all they were really men who dressed in a way that made strangers think they were women.  All myth anyway. ;)

Boadicea when I was at school. Then again, there were only five continents when I was at school.

My teacher-mode is in gear now - Boudicca is the correct spelling and on;ly became Boadicea as a result of mistranscription from the original document - the second "c" was erroneously written as an "e2".

Sorry Ron, but all the academic documents and books I have ever seen spell the correct pronunciation of "Boudica" without the second "c" ;)

Then I am sorry, Lizzie, but your sources have picked up on the later, false, transcripts.

I'm going with Ron on this one: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boudica#Name

Unless, of course, Ron wrote the Wikipedia page ;D

I find it quite amazing[in a good way]how threads on this forum can swap-like this one has-from food in childhood to the spelling of names of ancient Britons,just like a face to face conversation can veer away from it's original topic to something totally unrelated.Anyway back on topic,sorry Lizzie but whilst I do like peanuts I can't for some reason bring myself to like peanut butter.

Wikipedia??!!!!  I would have been thrown out of university if I have quoted that as a source! :o :o :o

If you have access to Jstore, then you will find all the academic papers that have been published that use "Boudica" in that form.  So I must obey that source!! ;D ;D ;D ;D ;)
