Emot may be called the Ticinus of the two counties of Westmoreland and Cumberland falling in a clear and rapid stream out of Ulleswater as the Tesin from Lago Maggiore. Upon its banks king Athelstan A.D. 926, concluded a treaty of peace and union with Constantine king of the Scots, Huval (Howel), king of the Western Britans or Stratcluid Welsh, and others who found themselves unable to make head against him. They met, according to Simeon Dunelm. and Hoveden iv. Id. Jul. in a place called Eamotun, and entered into a league confirmed by oath. Bishop Gibson has taken much pains to prove the above monuments, particularly Mayborough, memorials of this event, whereas they are plainly British and Druidical. ...
