Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire | Its first recorded name, Æglesburgh, is thought to mean "Fort of Aegel", though who Aegel was is not recorded.  Excavations in the town centre in 1985 found an Iron Age hillfort dating from the early 4th century BC.  Aylesbury was one of the strongholds of the ancient Britons, from whom it was taken in the year 571 by Cutwulph, King of the West Saxons; and had a fortress or castle "of some importance, from which circumstance derives its Saxon appellation."
