It was on this day back in 1988 that The Daily Telegraph reported that contractors working on Platform 10 at King’s Cross station had unearthed the skeleton of the warrior Queen Boudicca. Was it really hers? Who knows.


There's a lot of mystery surrounding this queen of the Iceni tribe - in particular her death and burial place. Historians have estimated that she died round 60AD, when it's thought that she poisoned herself to avoid capture by the Romans. Actually, several people have claimed to have found Boudicca's burial site - but all in different locations.

We're choosing today to celebrate the Celtic Queen by mixing up a Celtic Margarita.
