Cumbric counting system:
It’s clear to see the similarities with other Brythonic numerals and it’s fascinating that these terms are still used today by farmers in Cumbria and the North West of England.
It’s believed that the name of the 18th century popula children’s rhyme, ‘Hickory, Dickory, Dock,’ derived from the Cumbric terms for eight, nine and ten – now commonly remembered as ‘hovera, dovera, dick’ in Northern dialects.
