Boudicca, Queen of the Iceni Tribe, addressing her troops from a small chariot before going into battle against the Romans. During this battle it became very clear that the Romans would win, so, instead of being captured by them, she took poison, with her daughters doing the same.     Date: Circa 60 AD  ©Mary Evans / The Image Works

'Resolution' and 'Discovery' in Ship Cove, Nootka Sound The son of a Swiss sculptor, Webber studied in Berne and Paris before entering the Royal Academy Schools in 1775. The following year, however, he went as the official artist on Captain Cook's third voyage to the South Seas. Many of the resulting drawings were engraved for the Admiralty's account of the expedition, published in 1784. This large, typically detailed drawing depicts Nootka Sound on what is now Vancouver Island. The ships anchored there for a refit in April 1778 and observations were made using the tents and instruments which can be seen in the centre of the drawing. This is one of the very large 'roll' drawings drawings done by both Hodges on the second voyage and Webber for the Admiralty and the only one in the NMM collection of this size. © National Maritime Museum, London / The Image Works

Italy: Wild Beast Fights - Gladiatorial combats were popular in ancient Rome. Another type of arena fight was the "venatio" or "wild beast fights" during which a "bestiarius" would fight a wild animal—here lions—that were loosed into the arena. The bestiarius was considered inferior to the gladiator and bestiarii had little or no training, unlike gladiators. The equipment of the bestiarius varied. In this late 1880s drawing, the bestiarii have little protection against the lions. The venatio was not widely popular in ancient Rome.  © Newagen Archive / The Image Works
