I found a great story on the Beeb today which suggests that ancient remains found down next to a McDonalds in Kings Norton (south Birmingham) could be those of Queen Boudicca! While there doesn’t seem to be any real evidence to support the theory that it’s her remains, it’s pretty funny to think that such a poignant icon from ancient history could have keeled over while waiting at the drive through for her happy meal.

Also have a look at the Sun’s coverage of the story, which has a great mock-up of “McBurgercea” (image not shown here for copyright reasons).
