Here's a reprint of Tacitus' description of Boudicca and her doings (bearing in mind it's about like the Bathists describing the American attack on Iran :p):

I actually pointed to that site in my post a little while back. ;)

The future is better than the past. Despite the crepehangers, romanticists, and anti-intellectuals, the world steadily grows better because the human mind, applying itself to environment, makes it better. With hands...with tools...with horse sense and science and engineering.

Everything is theoretically impossible, until it is done. One could write a history of science in reverse by assembling the solemn pronouncements of highest authority about what could not be done and could never happen.  - RAH

Actually what I found impressive about Tacitus when I read his Agricola  is that he did give the other side a voice, dramatizing speeches in which they expressed their grievances against the Romans.  He wasn't just a propagandist for Rome.  Indeed, he somewhat glorified the ways of the "barbarians" as a critique of the decadence of Rome.  I wrote a short paper about it once:

Tacitus was amazingly fairminded. Definitely not part of the Roman propaganda machine. :p :p

Thanks for the link, Christopher.
