Celtic people, settled in the region of modern Essex in the late Iron Age. In the middle of the 1st cent. BC they were under pressure from the neighbouring Catuvellauni (Caes. Gall. 5,20) and for some time were dependent on them. Under their king Cunobellinus (c. 10-40 AD) they were again independent and dominant in southern Britain. Their largest oppidum was Camulodunum.
