The Picts
Two articles about the Picts taken from the Celtic Magazine of 1887

I was looking for information on the Picts and came across these two articles on The Picts in the Celtic Magazine of 1887/8. I have thus scanned them in in image format and made them into a pdf file which you can download below.

Picts: History and Heritage provides an overview of some of the key developments in the evolution of the Pictish kingdom between the 5th and 9th centuries. Using recent studies on the political centralisation of Pictland and its external relations with neighbouring kingdoms, the film traces some of the key developments in the history of Fortiu until the Gaelic takeover at the end of the 9th century.

The film emphasises the cultural and religious interaction between Pictland and the kingdom of Northumbria which provided the context for cultural masterpieces like the class 2 Pictish symbol stones and the Northumbrian illuminated Gospel books.

Filming at Bennachie, Tap o Noth, Burghead, the Rhynie dig and other locations provides a striking visual record of some of the key locations in Pictish history.
