Our Catuvellauni friends inhabited what is today Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire & Buckinghamshire. Their 'capital' was considered to be 'Verlamion', later 'Verulamium' to the Romans and St Alban's to us lot. /2
The Catuvellauni lasted as a free tribal group until shortly after the Roman invasion. Their king, Caratacus, was defeated and captured in battle about 50AD. Sources say the Romans let him live as a prisoner. /6
One thing I'm *exceedingly* looking forward to is discussing just how isolated the Iron Age inhabitants of Britain were before the legions arrived, on an upcoming @BylineTimes podcast. /FIN
PS. They weren't.
