General Information
concerning the Early British Kingdoms Website

This brief introduction is to welcome all-comers to my website, originally set up in 1996. Here you will find the history of the Celtic nations which emerged in Britain after the withdrawal of the Roman Administration in the period generally known as the 'Dark Ages'. The area covering the adversaries of these people, the Saxons, Scots & Picts, is slightly less developed. We also now have an 'EBK for Kids' area. Please remember that records from this time are very few and far between and there are few certain facts. Please also note, that this site does not cover Irish history or culture at all. I know nothing whatsoever about Ireland.

Searches are regularly made across the web to find 'borrowed' text from the Early British Kingdoms website, so if you have loaded up EBK information, without permission, you will almost certainly find that you will be contacted for royalty payments.

Students and teachers using this site for educational purposes may be reassured to know that, apart from years of study,  my main academic qualification is a joint Bachelor of Arts Honours Degree in History & Archaeology from the University of Reading.

If you would like to ask me any questions or make a contribution to the site, please e-mail me on

I prefer formal e-mails, laid out as you would a hard-copy letter.  I do not respond well to "I need..." mails and if I am going to spend time collecting information, I will require to know why you would like it. If you are not going to send a thank you afterwards, don't bother mailing me in the first place. I make these statements from experience. For those of you who think this is all obvious, I apologise for the outburst. has two sister-sites which you may also find of interest:

Royal Berkshire History
May Family History

All three sites are published by Nash Ford Publishing. For further information on other services provided by Nash Ford Publishing, please visit our website.
