http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manaw_Gododdin

Manaw Gododdin was the narrow coastal region on the south side of the Firth of Forth , part of the Brythonic-speaking Kingdom of Gododdin in the post-Roman Era .

The lands both south and north of the Firth of Forth were known as 'Manaw', but from the post-Roman Era forward, only the southern side is referred to as Manaw Gododdin, the Manaw associated with the people of Gododdin. Manaw Gododdin was adjacent to – and possibly included in – Eidyn the region surrounding modern Edinburgh Though Manaw Gododdin was located within the territory of modern Scotland, as a part of Yr Hen Ogledd (English: The Old North) it is also an intrinsic part of Welsh history, as both the Welsh and the Men of the North (Welsh Gwŷr y Gogledd) were self-perceived as a single people, collectively referred to as Cymry.[2] The arrival in Wales of Cunedda of Manaw Gododdin in c. 450 is traditionally considered to be the beginning of the history of modern Wales The name appears in literature as both Manaw Gododdin and Manau Gododdin. The modern Welsh form is spelled with a 'w'.
