Britain c. AD 625
Political Divisions

EBK presents a map of Britain as it may have appeared around AD 625. With the re-establishment of King Edwin in Deira, his armies are successful in a great expansion programme in which Bernicia, Elmet and probably Lindsey and South Rheged fall [Khaki Green]. The latter dynasty flee to Powys [Dark Pink}. This British Kingdom is itself under attack from Dogfeiling (a sub-kingdom of Gwynedd) and its eastern regions around Llys Pengwern (Shrewsbury) are taken [Pink]. Probable fall of the old tribal Kingdom of the Durotriges as Wessex moves westward to take the Isle of Purbeck [Green]. Dumnonia takes the western regions under its wing [Cream].
