Peoples of Caledonia

Published, edited, annotated (in red) & images added by Kenneth S. Doig

Peoples of Caledonia 
If western Europe is barbaric, then Caledonia is downright primitive. Much of the land is untouched wilderness. The scattered inhabitants lives in tiny villages or isolated farmsteads. The cities are nothing more than fortified centers with populations of a few hundred. Caledonia is inhabited by five different peoples: Picts, Scots, Britons, Angles, and Northmen.

The Picts
The Picts are the oldest inhabitants of Caledonia, which derives its name from one of their ancient tribes, the Caledonii, who dominated the area when the Romans first arrived. The Picts are a small, dark (there are so many contradicting descriptions of the Pictish phenotype. Many reputable ancient Graeco-Roman

(from Wikipedia)
Placenames in England derive from various linguistic origins. Modern interpretations are apt to be inexact: many English forms and names have been corrupted and broken down over the years, due to changes in language and culture which have caused the original meaning to be lost. 

In some cases, words used in place names are derived

Caernarfon : Gwynedd (Wales)

Wales has been inhabited by modern humans for at least 29,000 years. Continuous human-habitation dates from the end of the last ice age, between 12,000 and 10,000 years before present (BP), when Mesolithic hunter-gatherers from central-Europe began to migrate to Great Britain.

Gwynedd was an independent kingdom from the end of the Roman period until the 13th Century when it was conquered and subjugated by England (for more on this period see Kingdom of Gwynedd).

Bernicia (Old English: BerniceBeornice; Latin: Bernicia) was an Anglo-Saxon kingdom established by Anglian settlers of the 6th century in what is now southeastern Scotland and North East England.

The Anglian territory of Bernicia was approximately equivalent to the modern English counties of Northumberland and Durham, and the former Scottish counties of Berwickshire and East Lothian, stretching from the Forth to the Tees. In the early 7th century, it merged with its southern neighbour, Deira, to form the kingdom of Northumbria and itsand its borders subsequently expanded considerably.

The Welsh and Irish Celts have been found to be the genetic blood-brothers of Basques, scientists have revealed. The gene patterns of the three races passed down through the male line are all "strikingly similar", researchers concluded.

Basques can trace their roots back to the Stone Age and are one of Europe's most distinct people, fiercely proud of their ancestry and traditions.

Roman Britain: Tribal Names: Linguistic Analysis and the Origin of Gwynedd

Roman Britain

Published, formatted and edited by K.S. Doig
To start with, the name Gwynedd is definitely a post-Roman pronunciation which is still used by the modern Welsh.
Go back 1500 years and it is still most likely to be pronounced the modern way. But note that 1500 years ago when written down (in Latin, as no one wrote in Old Welsh back then), the name was spelled Venedotia. The first three letters, 'ven-', are probably the proto-Celtic word for 'white'. The proto-Celtic (or common Celtic) root was 'windo'. The proto-Celtic 'd' apparently mutates into a 't', a voiced 'th', a hard 'k', an 's', or a soft 'ch', and also, of course, it can be dropped entirely.

The Kingdoms of what is now modern Wales came about by several means after Roman officialdom left the British shores. The Irish began to immigrate on a grand scale. The sons of the Emperor Magnus Maximus used them to keep control of Southern Wales. While North Wales was taken by Cunedda Wledig who was intent on driving the Irish out. Eastern Wales and the adjoining area of what became England was the homeland of the usurper, Vortigern, and here his sons continued to hold sway.
