The Iceni attack the Romans at Londinium
 
  61 AD - Boudicca leads rebellion in Britain.
Boudicca, a queen of the Iceni tribe, leads a major uprising of tribes in south-east Britain against the occupying Roman forces. The cities of Colchester, London and St Albans are destroyed. Nero considers withdrawing altogether, but then the governor Gaius Suetonius Paulinus defeats her in a single battle, despite being heavily outnumbered. These events are told by two historians, Tacitus (Agricola 14-17; Annals 14:29-39) and Dio Cassius (Roman History 62:1-12).
