Cruithni is the plural of the medieval Irish word Cruithin. The other spelling often used is Cruthin. The original word was Pritani in P-Celtic or Prydyn in Welsh. The Pictish Chronicle records the legend that the Picts in Scotland were founded by a king named Cruithne, son of Cinge. However, it is doubtful whether there is any link between the Cruithni in Ulster and the Picts in Scotland.
In the account of the voyage of Pytheas of Massilia, about 325-323 BC, the islands of Ierne and Albion are called the Pretanic islands. Probably as a result of a Latin mispronunciation, the word changed to Britanni and the islands became known as the British Isles. For information about other sites with information relating to the Cruithni, please refer to the links page.
If you think that links to other sites, or references to other books, should be added, then please contact me. In general, my aim is to provide a small number of useful links and references, rather than exhaustive lists.
