Votadini country

By KingBee
The Votadini were a Celtic people of the Iron Age in Great Britain. Their territory in the main comprised what is now south-east Scotland and north-east England, with the earliest known capital of the tribe understood to have been the Traprain Law hill fort in East Lothian (ie, situated at the top of the bump left of centre), until that was abandoned in the early 5th century. Traprain Law is now home to a string of Exmoor ponies, best avoided, unless you want to lose a tooth to a hoof........

Huge thanks to Pablo for his GE award the other day (for "Follow the Yellow Beak Road") and to Colleen for her UA for the same image; and all the usual appreciation to the rest of you.

...and here endeth today's history lesson.

I have to admit that the name Votadini was totally unknown to me until you brought knowledge and enlightenment into my life just now. Just makes you wonder how much more there is to the history of the Isles of Britain that remains unknown to ignoramuses like myself.

That's something I hadn't heard of either, so thanks for the info, Bob. A good b&w conversion and well composed.
