The Trinovantes or Trinobantes were one of the Celtic tribes of pre-Roman Britain. Their territory was on the north side of the Thames estuary in current Essex and Suffolk, and included lands now located in Greater London. They were bordered to the north by the Iceni, and to the west by the Catuvellauni. Their name derives from the Celtic intensive prefix “tri-” and “novio” - new, so meaning “very new” in the sense of “newcomers”, but possibly with an applied sense of vigorous or lively - so the name could mean “the very vigorous people”. Their capital was Camulodunum (modern Colchester), one proposed site of the legendary Camelot.
