Hi Iain…I agree with you that they were a very mis-understood people and as usual, anything that can’t be understood in ancient times was shunned and outside ‘normal’ society.Some really beautiful carved stones, certainly not done by a ‘barbaric people’.

The Picts defeated the Romans and built properties that lasted over 2000 years. They were hardly primitives 🙂
