‘Picts’, was the name given to a people who inhabited a large part of what is now known as Scotland, before the arrival of the Irish Scots. The Picts established themselves before and were later the contemporary race of the Scots, the Welsh Britons, then later the Anglo-Saxons.
The Picts play an important role in the early history of the British Isles, they make their first appearance in the historical record at the end of the Third century AD. When the borderline raiding activities troubled the authorities of Roman Britain.
After less than 600 years, they seem to vanish from the pages of history, leaving behind no written record of their own, nor any significant trace of their language.
In the wake of their apparent disappearance, a fictional tale was created to explain it, and a shroud of myth enveloped the true story of their fall from power in ancient Alba.
