A New History of the Pict.
When the Romans came north to what is now modern Scotland they encountered the fierce and proud warrior society known as the Picts, who despite their lack of discipline and arms, managed to prevent the undefeated Roman Army from conquering the northern part of Britain, just as they later repulsed the Angles and the Vikings. New historical analysis, recently discovered evidence and an innovative Scottish perspective will expose long held assumptions about the native people.

Fortunately, the New Edinburgh History of Scotland has two books in the series: 'From Caledonia to Pictland' and 'From Pictland to Alba, 789-1070' that are genuine works of recent scholarship, covering the period McHardy misrepresents so badly.

McHardy's thesis is a radical one, yet at the same time a very straightforward one. For him the Picts were the descendents of the indigenous peoples who occupied most of Scotland north of the Clyde-Forth line (apart from much of Argyll). The people who carved the Pictish symbol stones were simply the descendents of the people who had built the iron age brochs, who in turn were descendents of those who left their mark on the landscape in the bronze age and neolithic eras.
