This is the first account of this northern heartland of Pictavia for a more general audience to take in the full implications of this and of the substantial recent archaeological work that has been undertaken in recent years. Part of the The Northern Picts project at Aberdeen University, this book represents an exciting cross disciplinary approach to the study of this still too little understood yet formative period in Scotland’s history.
"...a useful, and a slightly curious, compendium. [...] Evans’ thoughtful historical essay sets the scene well, and is critically underpinned by Woolf’s repositioning of the key Pictish kingdom of Fortríu into Moray from south of the Highland massif." ~Current Archaeology
"A fascinating book and one which will have a lasting value. It fundamentally changes the background picture [of the Picts]." ~Undiscovered Scotland
"A fascinating leap forward in this field of study. A book that requires time and effort, but with all the detail and history mustered within, it is worth the effort." ~Dundee Courier, Scottish Book of the Week
“...singularly recommended addition to personal, professional, college and university library Scottish Archaeology & History collections.” ~Midwest Book Review
