Is there a ghost of boudicca?

Yes there is a ghost of queen Boudicca. Her ghost has been spotted periodically throughout the years. Sightings of her have included in and around Theydon Bois (Essex) Iron age hillfort in the epping forest.Her daughters have also been sighted with her in this area. Boudicca and her soldiers are reported to haunt the icknield way in Ipsden (oxfordshire) along with some Roman soldiers. Other places where Queen Boudicca's ghost has been sighted include Cammeringham Lincolnshire in the area around Ermine street, where she travels around the village. Boudicca's ghost has also been seen at the Ambresbury Hillfort in Essex. There are numerous reports of her loitering in the area. So yes, Boudicca's ghost is still haunting Britain, maybe she has unfinished business or she can't rest because the Britons lost the battle with the Romans and she can't deal with it. It is hard to say....I guess that is a question that we would have to ask Boudicca herself.
