Synopsis

This book, also known as the evolution of the Pictish Legend, follows on from the "History of the Scots, Picts and Britons", but has been written, and can be read, independently of the previous work. It has more substantial research and provides documented contemporary proof of the location of the Picts, Scots and Britons in the British Isles. There is solid evidence placing Bede's "Fort of the Britons" in Cumbria around the Solway at a place today known as Maryport, and not as believed Dumbarton. It shows that the Scots from Ireland settled the South West of Scotland from the Solway to the Clyde region in the 6th century BC - 1st century AD period and highlights that the Picts themselves were not a heterogeneous population. It then establishes whether the Picts were indigenous or Celtic, and the full list of tribes that belonged to the Verturiones, The Dicalydones and The Scots. It also looks at the way the legend of the Picts has evolved from their "disappearance" around the end of the 9th century, through the medieval period and eventually into the 19th and 20th Century.
