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