9 – Suetonius, Part-Time Mountain-Climber and Full-Time Jerk.

We’re going to discuss Didius, Suetonius, Cartimandua, and Romanization as we set up our next topic… Boudica!

This episode covers the years 54 CE to 60 CE and the major characters are…

Cartimandua, Queen of the Brigantes and unhappy wife
Venutius, King of the Brigantes and unhappy Husband
and Gaius Suetonius Paulinus, governor of Britannia… and probably unhappy as well.

  3. Hello, Jamie! Could you help to recognize one word from this podcast. I’m Russian and my English is not very good. I can’t understand word on 9:25 and 20:30, it sounds for me like ‘sereals’.

    • Hmmm, at 9:30 (at least on my copy) I’m saying “The Silures of Wales”. They were a tribe who was pretty hostile to Rome.

      I’m not sure what word you’re referring to at 20:30. I’m just jabbering about Cartimandua and Venutius there. If you could write out what was being said with a blank spot for the word you don’t understand, I can probably fill it in for you.

      Thanks for listening!

  5. Just got in to your podcast and I’m loving it so far. Just one REALLY out of scope questions.. this episode was posted in mid 2011 but the Katy Perry song played at the end came out in 2013. How did that happen??
