Synopsis: The Pictish nation, forged in the shadow of the Roman empire, was the dominant power in northern Britain for more than 500 years. Much has been written about the archaeology and culture of the Picts in recent years, but the historical problems have received less than their fair share of attention. Attempting to redress the balance, this book provides a fresh look at the whole Pictish story, placing it firmly in its true historical context and reassessing topics such as the legend of Drust son of Erp and St. Columba’s mission to the Picts. Unusual but useful comparisons with contemporary events in Wales and England are presented, as well as new and controversial interpretations of Sueno’s Stone and Pictish symbols, and a fresh explanation of how the Scots took over Pictland in the ninth century AD.

From the Back Cover: The Pictish nation, forged in the shadow of the Roman empire, was the dominant power in northern Britain for more than five hundred years. Those who have tailed to find a satisfactory account of Pictish history will find this book invaluable. It provides a fresh look at the whole Pictish story, placing it firmly in its true historical context and reassessing topics such as the legend of Drust son of Erp and St Columba's mission to the Picts. There are unusual but useful comparisons with contemporary events in Wales and England as well as new and controversial interpretations of Sueno's Stone and Pictish symbols, and a fresh explanation of what happened in 843 when the Scots took over Pictland. Illustrated throughout by over forty maps, photographs and line illustrations, The Age of the Picts is a stimulating survey which will interest not only the student of Dark Age history but also anyone fascinated by the mystery of the Picts.
