Because the River Severn is a fressh water river. For any settlement to flourish it needs fresh water. Also the river would have been a source of food, ' fish etc.,

NB Because there is NO fresh water in deserts, settlements villages, towns, & cities do not naturally establish.

Modern technology allows places like Las Vegas to flourish because fresh water is piped in from hundreds of miles away.
