Well, there were Parisii in Humberside; they could easily have named a city in some place not conquered by Franks. (Alternate historians take note.) Atrebates, Belgae, Brigantes also appeared both in Britain and on the Continent. I assume the Fir Bolg of Irish legend were related to the Belgae. -- Anton Sherwood --
