Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Carvetii were a people and civitas of Roman Britain living in what is now Cumbria and North Lancashire in north-west England. They are not mentioned in Ptolemy's Geography or in any other classical text, and are known only from inscriptions found in Penrith and Temple Sowerby in Cumbria. Their capital is presumed to have been Luguvalium (Carlisle), the only walled town known in the region.They may have been part of the neighbouring Brigantes confederation, and some have speculated that Venutius, husband of the Brigantian queen Cartimandua and later an important British resistance leader in the 1st century, may have been a Carvetian.show more
