(formerly Granada PLC from 1954 to 2004) The Brigantes were the major Celtic tribe (Celtic tribes in Britain and Ireland) in what is now Northern England. With a stronghold at the sandstone outcrop on which Manchester Cathedral now stands, opposite Salford's original centre, their territory extended across the fertile lowland by the River Irwell that is now Salford and Stretford. Following the Roman conquest of Britain, General Agricola (Gnaeus Julius Agricola) ordered the construction of a Roman fort (Castra) named ''Mamucium'' (Manchester) to protect the routes to ''Deva Victrix'' (Chester) and ''Eboracum'' (York) from the Brigantes. The fort was completed in AD 79, and for over 300 years the ''Pax Romana'' brought peace to the area. Both the main Roman road to the north, from Mamucium to Ribchester, and a second road to the west, ran through what is now Salford, but few Roman artefacts have been found in the area.

modern interpretation

this area, such as use of ''doon'' instead of ''down'' and substitution of -''ang'' noise in words that end -''ong'' (''lang'' instead of ''long''), are now prevalent only in the more northern parts of the region; these linguistic features may reflect a more modern interpretation of where the line sits today. As speech has changed, there is little consensus on what defines a "northern" accent or dialect. Many people in Yorkshire and north Lancashire omit certain sounds from sentences

'''Northern England''', also known as the '''North of England''', '''the North''' or the '''North Country''', is a cultural region of England. It is not an official government region (Regions of England), but rather an informal amalgamation of counties (counties of England). It extends roughly from the River Trent to the south, Retrieved on 23 February 2009. to Scotland in the north.

Northern England includes three Euro constituencies (Regions of England): the North East (North East England), North West (North West England) and Yorkshire and the Humber. These have a combined population of around 14.5 million and an area of 37,331 km 2 (14,414 sq mi).

During antiquity most of the area was part of ''Brigantia''—homeland of the Brigantes and the largest Brythonic (Britons (historical)) kingdom of Great Britain. After the Roman conquest of Britain the city of York became capital of the area, called Britannia Inferior then Britannia Secunda. In Sub-Roman Britain new Brythonic kingdoms of the ''Hen Ogledd'' ("Old North") emerged. The Angle (Angles) settlers created Bernicia and Deira from which came Northumbria (Kingdom of Northumbria) and a Golden Age (Northumbria's Golden Age) in cultural, scholarly and monastic activity, centred on Lindisfarne and aided by Irish monks. Retrieved on 23 February 2009. Norse (Norsemen) and Gaelic (Norse Gael) Viking raiders gained control of much of the area, creating the Danelaw. During this time there were close relations with Mann and the Isles (Kingdom of Mann and the Isles), Dublin (Kingdom of Dublin) and Norway. Northumbria was unified with the rest of England under Eadred (Eadred of England) around 952.

After the Norman conquest (Norman conquest of England) in 1066, the Harrying of the North brought destruction, but afterwards many towns were built and founded. A Council of the North was in place during the Late Middle Ages until the Commonwealth (Commonwealth of England) after the Civil War (English Civil War). The area experienced Anglo–Scottish border fighting until the unification of Britain (History of the formation of the United Kingdom) under the Stuarts (House of Stuart).
