Excellent, up-to-date work on the Picts and the Scots of ancient Scotland. For many centuries the Picts have remained shrouded in myth and legend since
the only written records - their Pictish stones - have been undecipherable. In 1958, with the discovering of the St. Ninan's Isle Treasure, a new focus has been applied to interpreting what we know.
In this highly readable account, the Laings present the latest archaeological discoveries, and discusses how these two different races co-existed and ultimately merged into a nation of one through the slaughter of the Pict royal houses.
