The Dobunni Celts lived in the part of south western Britain that today broadly coincides with the counties of North Somerset, Bristol, and Gloucestershire - their territory contained two large towns (Corinium Dobunnorum now Cirencester, and Colonia Nerviana Glevum now Gloucester). Besides this there were numerous smaller towns, and many rich villas...

They were not a warlike people but farmers and were probably vassals of the tribe to their east, the Catevellauni.
