BOUDICA MANDA SCOTT PDF

In AD 60, Boudica, war leader of the Eceni, led her people in a final bloody revolt against the occupying armies of Rome. It was the culmination of nearly twenty years of resistance against an occupying force that sought to crush a vibrant, complex civilization and replace it with the laws, taxes and slavery of the Roman Empire. In the company of a supreme storyteller, the reader is plunged into the unforgettable world of tribal Britain in the years before the Romans came: a twilight world of Dreamers and the magic of the gods; a world where horses and dogs and the landscape itself become characters in their own right; where warriors fight for honour as much as victory. Above all, it is a world of passion and courage and spectacular, heart-felt heroism pitched against overwhelming odds.

We need not just new stories, but a whole new shape to what a story is. And it will start with our writing. June marked fifteen years since Dreaming the Eagle was first published. There were no electronic versions then, no Facebook, no Twitter. Email was on dial up, and we waited until midnight to dial in because the lines were engaged during the day.

I had a career as a thriller writer, but the Boudica books were sitting there, in the back of my mind, waiting to be written. I read everything she wrote, but she never really lifted the goat-skin flap: the mysteries remained mysterious, the rites and the rituals were hinted at, but never shown.

Sutcliff did introduce me to Mithras though, which was my first foray into a world beyond the Protestant churchianity of the small Scottish village in which I grew up.

Soon after, I read The Last of the Mohicans , which opened the door wider into other worlds and other ways of living and was enough to set the path for the rest of my life. Being Scottish to the core, I spent my teenage years exploring the druids, what they thought, how they practiced: not much was known, which meant that it was easy to find it all.

Of all the reasons there are to write, the process of discovery is one of the most compelling. We write the things we want to know because in the writing, in the getting-under-the-skin of our characters, their time and place, our own worlds open up. In writing the four Boudica: Dreaming books, therefore, I was writing for myself, to open the doors that Sutcliff had kept so resolutely shut, to bring the dreaming to life, to find who we were before the Romans came, so that I, at least, might know who I could be if I ever managed to shed all the cultural trappings they left us.

I was writing to find what felt authentic to me, to take my own practice deeper while creating books that I thought might touch one or two people and let them see the world differently.

It was always possible that the entire reading world might have read them as historical thrillers and carried on as before, untouched by anything deeper. For a writer, there is no greater honour. In the days when writing seems more like mining granite with a cardboard teaspoon, this is what makes it worthwhile.

Thank you all. Boudica: 15 years on. Why I wrote the Boudica Series Of all the reasons there are to write, the process of discovery is one of the most compelling.
