A blog dedicated to a greater understanding of the Picts and their Symbol Stones

Who were the Picts?

  • Were they really the  savage barbarians they’re usually portrayed as?
  • What were their mysterious symbol stones for?
  • What do the symbols actually mean?
  • Were they Celts?

Hopefully some of these questions (and more) will be answered in this blog.

Most importantly, I hope that you will become as enthusiastic about the Picts as I am.

  1. What do you think of the theory the the Scottish Travellers (gypsies) were Picts?

    • I’ve heard that before (in regard to Highland Travellers),but don’t know if there’s any real evidence for it. With the advent of DNA haplotyping it may be possible to check this? Iain
