Iron Age Stories!

Grunge Distressed Circle

This project explores the Coritani tribe through music, art & performance as a way to connect local people to their heritage.

Organic Irregular Blob with Drop Shadow

The Coritani (also known

as the Corieltauvi, or Corieltavi) were an agricultural tribe of people living in Britain prior to the Roman conquest, and thereafter a civitas of Roman Britain.


older than our civil war, older than french vikings, older than danes

older than saxon, angle or jute, older than roman, but knew him well

haunts a ragged edge of this land, where the sea has become nomad

how many bones fill this windswept outpost with wailing descant

wait for wind to whisper and moan their raw, frigid, tedious talk

a liminal place, sparse ground, where cod swim through thick clay

how many stories can a storyteller tell to ears washed in seawater

coritani shanakee native to this soil, it boils with eel and bogtrotter

who use reeds to roof their roundhouse, where he trades his words

so many marginal birds wade the rich mud that coats this coast

walking the ket bank between what will become our abbey hill

and fishing huts on wild, weather beaten, gale swept holme hill

backwater in a world full of backwaters, a wet coastal outpost

bran's words wind shuffled in his rainy season, telltalers head

spirits and gods that fill and inform the cut of his familial story

soon new gods will invade, encroach upon old ways and byways

push sense and understanding into strange unfamiliar corners

water down everyday genius loci, till they become fable beings

until then herons fly through the marsh, skim reedbed chatter

take the ghost of a trickster fibber and slacken his hold on time
