The Segontiaci were a tribe of Iron Age Britain encountered by Julius Caesar during his second expedition to Britain in 55 BC.[1] They surrendered to him as he was campaigning against Cassivellaunus in the Thames Valley, which suggests they were also based in the south-east. However a Roman fort in north Wales, near the River Seiont, was called Segontium, suggesting they may have hailed from farther afield.
