Selkirk is a town in the border areas of Scotland. It lies on the Ettrick River, a tributary of the river Tweed, which runs throughout the borders land. The town has an approximate population of 5,000 people who are nick-named Souters which refers to the once prosperous shoe-making industry in Selkirk. Get in touch today if you’re wondering how to claim compensation in Selkirk.
Selkirk is the oldest Royal Burgh in Scotland and its name derives from the church or kirk of the Selgovae tribe who occupied Scotland during the Romans aborted invasion of what was then known as Caledonia. The Selgovae tribe’s history mainly comes down to us from the Romans who are often unreliable historical sources as they tend to make out that everyone other than themselves was a raging lunatic.
Tacitus mentions The Selgovae in relation to Gnaenus Julius Agrilico who coincidently happened to be Tacitus’s father in law. Argilico made many attempts to keep the Selgovae in check but they continually resisted Roman rule which, of course, infuriated the Romans.
An invasion – find out how to claim compensation in Selkirk
Selgovae decided to attempt an invasion and led some of his soldiers into the dangerous unconquered area. The Romans finally managed to hold down several bases in the area but as Tacitus notes, they were troublesome.
The Selgovae has similar features to a tribe known as the Brigantes who occupied Cumbria during that era who also caused great trouble for the Roman legions. By 370 AD, shortly before the Romans abandoned Britain altogether they left their Scottish camps and bases, never to return.
Of course, we are no longer occupied by the Romans who wanted to rule the land. However, some people, when they get behind the wheel of a car, seem to be under the impression that they are Roman generals and the right of the road is theirs whether the Highway Code suggests otherwise or not.
