History[ edit ] Positioned on the shores of a glacial lake at the end of the last Ice Age , Pickering was in an ideal place for early settlers to benefit from the multiple natural resources of the moorlands to the north, the wetlands to the south, running water in the beck and the forests all around. It had wood, stone, wildfowl , game, fish, fresh water and fertile easily worked soils. The east—west route from the coast passed along the foothills of the North York Moors through the site at a place where the beck could be forded. Legendary sources suggest an early date for the establishment of a town but traces of earlier settlements have been erased by subsequent development. According to the Domesday Book there was enough arable land for 27 ploughs, meadows and extensive woodlands. The town may have grown up to service the Norman castle. A castle and church were built at this time and the medieval kings occasionally visited the area. The estate was confiscated by the King and then returned.

Celtic tribes[ edit ] Early inhabitants of Yorkshire were Celts , who formed two separate tribes, the Brigantes and the Parisi. The tribe controlled most of Northern England and more territory than any other Celtic tribe in England. That they had the Yorkshire area as their heartland is evident in that Isurium Brigantum now known as Aldborough was the capital town of their civitas under Roman rule. Six of the nine Brigantian poleis described by Claudius Ptolemaeus in the Geographia fall within the historic county.
Initially, this situation suited both the Romans and the Brigantes, who were known as the most militant tribe in Britain. Queen Cartimandua left her husband Venutius for his armour bearer, Vellocatus , setting off a chain of events which changed control of the Yorkshire area. Cartimandua, due to her good relationship with the Romans, was able to keep control of the kingdom; however, her former husband staged rebellions against her and her Roman allies.
This saw his son Constantine the Great , who became renowned for his contributions to Christianity, proclaimed emperor in the city. By this stage, the Western Empire was in intermittent decline. The area which this kingdom covered included most of Southern Northumbria, roughly equivalent to the borders of Yorkshire extending further West.
