The Dwellers of Lyn-dun is a lot older than cockney. They have their name from the once marshy region in which they live. I believe we have to go back to 15th century England to find the origin of the name.

Dirt is almost correct, but it's not the correct word. It's a lot harder than dirt.

It is indeed from the night the stars and fears and dark dreams comes.
