I Pecseti erano una tribù anglosassone che viveva nell'area centro-settentrionale del Peak District (vedi Monti Pennini), in Inghilterra.

EtnografiaModifica

Potrebbero essere stati discendenti della tribù celtica dei Briganti, diventando poi un popolo anglosassone in seguito al contatto con queste genti. I loro primi insediamenti nel Derbyshire, odierno Peak District, furono di Angli dell'ovest, tribù che avanzò lungo le valli dei fiumi Derwent e Dove nel VI secolo. Presso i popoli locali furono conosciuti come Pecseti. In seguito il loro territorio fece parte della parte settentrionale della Mercia.
