Tunnelers expanding London's Underground (Tube) stations have stumbled on a cache of more than two dozen Roman-era skulls. The skulls likely date from the first century A.D. and may possiblyjust possiblybe victims of the famed Queen Boudicca's troops, decapitated during her uprising against Roman rule in 61 A.D.

My Celtic ancestors were oppressed by the Romans. I still weep for our murdered queen, Boudicca. I WANT REPARATIONS FROM THE D@MN ITALIANS. How long will this injustice go on?
Seems that the good queen objected to her daughters being raped by the tyrant oppressors. Might be a good precedent.
...victims of the famed Queen Boudicca's troops...Yeah, troops, right... she led thousands of untrained tribesmen/tribeswomen to commit acts of mass murder, then into a battle where they had massive numerical superiority over the remnant Roman army in Britain, where they were nevertheless annihilated. After that, the surviving Iceni were systematically hunted down and/or rounded up and ceased to exist. Nice going! Like other modern Euro states, the historical events are rendered into quasi-historical fiction in order to serve the needs of national myth.
Yes. The true nature of the skulls lies beyond this galaxy.
“My Celtic ancestors were oppressed by the Romans. I still weep for our murdered queen, Boudicca. I WANT REPARATIONS FROM THE D@MN ITALIANS. How long will this injustice go on?”
My ancestor were held in slavery by black Egyptians for over 400 years and it took numerous acts of God to gain their freedom.
Yeah, and that danged Hadrian built a wall that stopped my ancestors from their primary source of income, pillaging northern England!! I want reparations too!!
You are kind of doing the Iceni down a bit there, they managed to ambush and annihilate an entire Roman Legion near Colchester during the revolt, which was quite an achievement in those days.
Some scholars say these skulls are early victims of socialized medicine in England.
The Goths and the Visi Goths beat you to it.
Get in line. My ancestors, the Slavs, were taken as slaves (where they got the word slave from) by the Romans. I demand an apology and restitution. I will accept nothing less than full-grown, young clones of Sophia Loren and Gina Lollobrigida. Maybe Luciana Palazzi as well. I'm also part Irish and will accept ownership of the Guinness Brewery as restitution.
Most slavs (and many other Christian inhabitants of Europe) were taken as salves by Muslim hordes of one type or another but mainly Turks.
They’re still waiting for that last train home.
Ooops, I dropped the towel.
