Notes[edit | edit source]
- Glevum was a Roman fort established around AD 48 in place of the former early Brittonic settlement, at an important crossing of the River Severn. After the victorious Battle of Badon supposedly led by King Arthur against the Anglo-Saxons circa 497, the town experienced a modest growth. It was finally captured by Saxons in 577 and became known as Gloucester, from combination of the former name and Old English "ceaster", meaning "fort".
