That name, from the source you cited, looks like it was Celtic rather than Latin. If it was never used in Latin, I see no reason to prefer it over the English name or a Latinisation in -burgum. Pantocrator 05:07, 14 Aprilis 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Agreed. Anyway there are existing Latinisations, including Sceftonia in Guillelmus Malmesburiensis. I'll move it to that for the present: if some other form is preferable, no doubt it will be proposed.
This [1] is the link used to support Caer Palladur. I don't see why a Welsh name for this place -- which is a long way from Wales -- is of interest to Vicipaedia, so I leave it here for the present. "Supposed by some" (when those words are used by a local historian of 1831, without a footnote) isn't a good foundation to build on. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 08:54, 14 Aprilis 2010 (UTC)[reply]
I also took out the sentence that said it was one of the oldest and highest towns in England. Clearly, towns founded by the Romans are many centuries older. As for highest, that seems puzzling, but perhaps, if it's true, we could cite a source? Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 12:07, 14 Aprilis 2010 (UTC)[reply]
