Product description

Stuart McHardy examines the Pictish symbols which have been discovered on various items across Scotland. The book sets out a cohesive interpretation of the Pictish past, using a variety of both temporal and geographical sources. This interpretation serves as a suggestion that there was an underlying series of ideas and beliefs behind the creation of the symbols.
