Boudicca buried in Birmingham ?

Is Queen Boudicca buried in Brum ? Did the wild Queen of the Iceni have her last battle against Seutonius Paulinus's massed Legions in Kings Norton, on Parsons Hill where McDonalds stands nowadays !
I always believed the evidence pointed to the last battle being somewhere near Mancetter just South East of Atherstone, which fits the description of a plain before wooded hills. So can the surroundings of Kings Norton according to Councillor Peter Douglas Osborn, and Roman age remains have just been discovered there. Hmmm, or better, ho hum.
