Gododdin

The Gododdin (Welsh pronunciation: [?o?doĆ°in]) were a Brittonic people of north-eastern Britain (modern north-east England and south-east Scotland) in the sub-Roman period, the area known as the Hen Ogledd or Old North. They are best known as the subject of the 6th-century Welsh poem Y Gododdin, which memorializes the Battle of Catraeth and is attributed to Aneirin.

The name Gododdin is the Modern Welsh form; it is derived, via Old Welsh Guotodin from the Brythonic language word Votadini, attested in Greek texts from the Roman period. for more click here
