but what i'm looking for i guess is any info on the names of the tribes, apart from the Attacotti, the Dál Riada, the Déisi, the Uí Líatháin.
the scotti that are mentioned are these peoples that i am looking for. has anyone any info on them? apart from the general info given above, and that the name might, and i stress might, mean something like "pirate" or "raider"???
They were more likely coming to Britian as Pirate's because durning the 300s-400AD the Legion was no more and it was replaced with a Part-time millita and also with the empire ripping into The westen and eastern Empire, almost content civl war and the east stelling the best units of the army Britan was rip for Pirate's to start raiding the provinc and the Romano-Britrish just could not hold them and also the Anglo-saxons off
