Britain was divided into a number of tribal territories, some large and powerful, others small and insignificant, those who opposed Rome and those who welcomed the trappings of civilisation.
Life was hard for the Celtic tribes. They were mainly farmers who grew, gathered or hunted for their own food. They were also fierce warriors who were often at war with each other. The following is a list of the Tribes of Britain.
