Britain c. AD 425
Political Divisions

EBK presents a map of Britain as it may have appeared around AD 425. This was around the time that Vortigern is said to have emerged from the Gloucester area as the chief political power in the country [Pink}. The Saxons and Irish were already settling in coastal areas. Little is known of the Northern Pictish regions [Purple], but presumably the tribal divisions of previous ages survived into the 5th century.
