Gododdin

Gododdin was the kingdom of the Votadina, a British tribe. The poem Y Gododdin by Aneirin, a bard, written in Brythonic (a medieval Celtic language closely akin to Welsh) tells the tale of the last days of Gododdin in its fatal struggle with Bernicia. After the conquest of Gododdin its capital, Dunedin, was renamed Edinburgh.

From the Gododdin comes the line translated into English as Men went to Cattraeth.
