Quick Reference


Iron Age tribal group occupying northeastern England around the Humber estuary. Communities in this area were in close contact with northern France in the later 5th century bc, and this gives rise to the Arras Culture. There is little sign of continued contact with the continent in later centuries and the Parisi developed their own traditions down to the Roman conquest. The tribal capital is not certainly identified, but may be the large hillfort at Barwick‐in‐Elmet, which later came to contain the civitas capital of Aldborough.
