(p.203) Conclusion
Queen Boudica and Historical Culture in Britain

Martha Vandrei

Oxford University Press

This chapter summarizes the major conceptual points the book seeks to draw out, while also providing a more sustained rumination on the implications of the book’s content and approach for the practice of history in the present day. It seeks to draw together discussions of history, popular culture, and the role of the historical profession, and touches on recent debates within the academy. It also brings out some of the key points for further research which an examination of Boudica and historical culture reveals, particularly the relationship between history and drama, as well as the under-studied area of eighteenth-century historical culture more generally.

Keywords:   historical profession, popular culture, historical culture, uses of the past, historical practice
