Cumbric wis a variety o the Celtic spoken in the Hen Ogledd or "Auld North" o wha is nou northren Ingland an soothren Lawland Scotland, the aurie anciently kent as Cumbrie, durin the Early Middle Ages.[1] It wis closely related to Auld Welsh an the ither Brythonic leids. Place name evidence suggests Cumbric speakers mey hae carried it intae ither pairts o Northren Ingland as migrants frae its core aurie further north.[2] It mey an aa hae been spoken as far sooth as the Yorkshire Dales. Maist linguists believe that it became extinct in the 12t century, efter the incorporation o the semi-independent Kinrick o Strathclyde intae the Kinrick o Scotland.
