My essay isn't long enough - how can I flush it out to meet the length requirement?
The first thing you should do is check that you've double spaced the essay! I once wrote a paper that I thought was too short, and realised I had not double spaced it, only to then find it was far too long! Once you have done that, carefully read back through your essay and make sure you answered all the questions posed, made clear and concise arguments, and have a well-thought out conclusion that ties your whole essay together. If after that you have not added anything, revisit some of the sources you used for your paper. Maybe they can shed some additional light onto your topic, and give you some extra information to flush out your paper with. Speaking of sources, make sure you have properly tied your sources together in your paper. Did you introduce each source and discuss why you were citing it within the structure of your own argument, or did you just drop it in to fulfil a citation requirement? If your essay or paper is creative, go back through and see if you can add any additional descriptive material. Can you paint a more detailed picture of the setting? Have you described your protagonist well enough? If you are writing from a personal place, have you given enough background information that the reader will understand what you are trying to say? It can also be beneficial to have a third party read through and highlight any areas where they would like any more information. This second pair of eyes can help you see areas you might otherwise be glossing over after spending so much time with the same paper.

In brief, who was Boudica?
Boudica was the queen of the Icini tribe in what is now the United Kingdom. When Roman governor Paullinus began his campaign in North Wales around AD 60/61, Boudica and her people rose up against him and his men. They defeated him at Verulamium (now St Albans), and continued on to Londinium (now London), where Boudica's troops were defeated. It is believed that Boudica there poisoned herself to avoid capture, however the site of the defeating battle and her death have yet to be recovered.
What is Anthropology?
Anthropology is the study of what makes us tick. It helps us to understand what makes us human. The main disciplines in anthropology include cultural and physical anthropology, and archaeology, though there are many other sub-disciplines. Cultural anthropology deals with the values and customs of present day society, such as politics, religion, ritual, symbolic behaviours, etc. Physical, or biological, anthropology teaches us about the physical development of the human race, while archaeology studies past humans through the analysis of the physical evidence they left behind.
