They were coastal defences against attacks by the Scoti from Ireland and by the Caledonii, the most powerful tribe in what is now Scotland. The 16th-century Britannia, written by William Camden describes ruins of the coastal defences at Workington.A Viking sword was discovered at Northside, which is believed to indicate that there was a settlement at the river's mouth.
