Historical background


(1st century BC - 1st century AD)

The Durotriges occupied the territories which correspond to present-day Dorset as well as part of Somerset, Wiltshire and West-Hampshire, neighbors of the Atrebates and Regni. The Avon formed the eastern border of their kingdom. The Durotriges were separated to the north from the Dobunni by Salisbury Plain. The names of the kings of the Durotriges have not reached us. They maintained trade relations with their Armorican neighbors and were excellent sailors. After the Venetian defeat of 57 BC, they found themselves isolated and relations with the Continent were interrupted. They fiercely resisted the Roman invasion. (Kruta: 589).
