The Royal House of the Brigantes
First transmitted in 1974, Magnus Magnusson talks to Sir Mortimer Wheeler about Brigantes in northern Britain at the time of the Roman conquest. The Brigantes, a tribe of Celts, attempted to stave off the approaching Roman army at Stanwick St John in Yorkshire.
Sir Mortimer also relates the story of Venutius, king of the Brigantes and his wife Cartimandua.
