    Have you ever read Bran Mak Morn by Robert E. Howard? It is a volume of short stories in which the Picts are featured, along with their fictional King Bran.

    I've read it several times, but the last time was quite a few years ago. Great book, though, if you like sword-and-sorcery adventure stories.

        I enjoyed perusing that Robert E. Howard fan web site. Howard's Picts were fictional and based on the old 19th century idea that Europe was peopled by a small, swarthy race of "Mediterraneans" before the coming of the Indo-European tribes from the East. Howard's fictional Picts represented those pre-IE folks.

        Still, I love Robert E. Howard's fiction. In high school I sat in the back of math class with a Conan novel stuck in my Geometry book practically every day.

          I never was much of a book reader. I did like the pictures.

          When you were reading Conan in class I was probably playing hookey

            You should read some of Howard's stuff now. Based on what you seem to be interested in here, I think you would like it.

            You can pick one up at the library, so it shouldn't cost you anything.

              I may look some of his stuff up. I visit the library every other week or so. I'm sure the librarian can get the book, even if it is in another library branch.

                Dalriada

                I'm a descendant of the Dalriada and I'm wondering how much archaeology is being done in Scone and the other seat of the Pictish kings, since there is relatively little to go on in written history.

                  I'm curious which value you have for ...DYS393= ?

                  I had to look up the Dalriada for a general idea. You never know..*POOF* I could be one too
                  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dalriada

                  I am aware different sites will have varying views on who they were.

                  How have you come to your conclusion?
