Gladiatrix: the true story of history's unknown woman warrior
It was discovered in London, 1996-the burial ground of a first-century Roman gladiator. Even more amazing, the remains were that of a female. The finding not only made history, but changed it, giving a new understanding of the role of women in Roman society and the spectacle of the blood sport.
A fascinating celebration of ancient sisters-in-arms and a revealing look at a never-before-told chapter in history, Gladiatrix also explores the legend of the Amazons and the true story of Boudica, the real warrior queen who almost brought Rome to its knees.
