Paying homage to the original Britonians

In 6th century AD, a group of British Celts made the dangerous journey to found a new settlement called Britonia in Galicia, Spain. They became known as the Britonians, and although not much is known about them – historians often cite them as the original ‘British expats’ of their day.

While the Union of Britain didn’t take place until centuries later, the founding of Britonia on the Iberian Peninsula has often been a peculiar fascination of those that study early British history that goes back to Roman times.

And in the spirit of curiosity and exploration, The Britonian seeks to share stories of an outward looking Britain, while sharing perspectives of other countries and their cultures on the most important social issues of today.
