Devon was shaped by our Anglo-Saxon heritage. Throughout this web page and on much of the text at our events we translate our key words into Anglo-Saxon runes as a nod to our history and counties identity.
During Roman rule Devon, as we know it today, was a part of the kingdom of Demonia. When the Anglo-Saxons invaded they split up the kingdom into sub-kingdoms (or shires) this is when Devonshire was born. Many of our rich agricultural and fishing rituals have deep history in this period. However the Anglo-Saxons didn’t venture as far as the Cornish Celts because of the uncivilised way in which they used to put jam on scones before cream….Sorry Cornwall you could have been Cornwallshire.
