The late Iron Age tribe living in the west of England in the Cotswolds and in the upper Thames Valley to the east of the Severn and in the Forest of Dean and Worcester to the west. The capital of the region, at least from the early 1st century ad onwards, was at Bagindon, near Cirencester, although other centres must also have been important in such a large area. Developed hillforts and enclosed oppida were the high‐level units of the settlement system, around which were numerous smaller enclosures and open settlements. The Dobunni issued coins from about 35 bc: the succession of rulers recorded on these include Bodvoc (15–10 bc), Anted (10 bc–ad 10), Comux (ad 10–15), Eisu (ad 15–30), and Catti (ad 15–43).
