This document is the result of approx. 4 years of hard study. It is mainly designed for those individuals researching early Scottish history, though it should also be of interest to others studying pre-Roman and post-Roman British prehistory, particularly of an Arthurian nature. As a consequence of the large amount of material gathered, this document has become much larger than originally intended. Because of this , I have uploaded the document in sections with links (in blue underlined text) to enable transfer between areas of interest. NB : I would be grateful to receive your comments on this work and shall be delighted to receive e-mails regarding any queries or suggestions that you may have. Use this link to e-mail all comments
Click on the appropriate link (i.e. the underlined text ) to go to the section/chapter described. There are links at the end of each section to allow you to progress further [for novice users the arrow cursor controlled by your mouse should transform into a hand when placed on the link]. It is advisable that in order to save time and unnecessary expense you download the section of interest and read it at your leisure Link to Introduction Link to Part 1 : The Ancient Origins of the Scots Over 16 paragraphs, this section deals with the history of the ancient scots from the very earliest times, discussing their pre-christian legends and the background to their eventual settlement of mainland Scotland.

Pictish Nation
Welcome to the world's first web site dedicated to the Picts! On the web since 1994! In here I want to make some things available to potential Pictophiles and all others who come to visit. First of all, I want to create the world's first page dedicated to that ancient race (known as the Picts) whom once inhabited present day Scotland. I will try to link all Pictish pages on the web here. If you know of one I've missed, please email me with its URL and I will add it. Furthermore, for really serious Pictophiles, I recommend joining the Pictish Arts Society , which is truly the world's finest organization dedicated to preserving and expanding interest in Pictish culture. As such I enthusiastically recommend you join them! To read some books about the Picts visit the link at the bottom of the page. Finally, those of you who saw the TBS Special on June 28, 1998 "Tattoos: Women of the Ink", Let's get those letters flowing to the National Geographic and maybe they'll take a look at them too! If you liked the TBS piece, write to them and tell them you'd like them to do a program on the Picts! Their address is: Turner Original Productions, One CNN Center, Box 105366, Atlanta, GA 30348. I will also try to create links to artists who work in a Pictish genre and also WHERE you can find them. Since I believe that we about to see an explosion of interest in the art and history of these ancient people, I look forward to the page and its links changing all the time. Visit often!

4. Ireland Ancient History
The ancient history of Ireland is cloudy; marvelous records have it is difficult todistinguish history from myth from Spain to Ireland; The picts from Thracia
ON ANCIENT IRISH HISTORY By Ann Morrison Fisher The ancient history of Ireland is cloudy; marvelous records have been preserved in the old Irish books, but it is difficult to distinguish history from myth at remote periods. The Book of the Invasions of Ireland tells of a number of invasions or immigrations, but the recurrence of names and incidents and the semi-fabulous atmosphere leads one to doubt the exact historicity of these accounts. Authorities disagree not only about how many invasions are historical but even about how many invasions the book describes. M. d'Arbois de Jubainville sees seven mythological immigrations:
  • Partholan to Ireland Nemed to Ireland The Firbolg to Ireland The Tuatha de Danaan to Ireland Mile, son of Bile, to Spain The sons of Mile from Spain to Ireland The Picts from Thracia to Ireland and from Ireland to Britain
P.W. Joyce lists:
  • The Parthalonians The Nemedians The Firbolgs The Dedannans The Milesians
He treats all these as historical immigrations. Sullivan also accepts these five as historical, but Curtayne treats only the Milesians as a clearly historical invasion. Gerald Hawkins writes of the "great corpus of handed-down myth and history" that tells of:
  • The Parthalonians The Fomorians The Nemedians The Fir Bolg The Tuatha de Danaan The Milesians The Dravidians
According to the Book of Invasions , the first invasion was that of Cessair or Banba, the first woman to find Ireland before the flood. She came from the island of Meroe in the Nile in Egypt, in a vain attempt to escape the coming flood. Although two ships were wrecked, Cassair escaped to land in Ireland with fifty women and three men. The flood came and only one man escaped by hiding in a cave above Tul Tuinde (Fert Fintain). This Fintan find (the White) son of Lamech survived for many generations and passed on the history of Ireland to each new group of invaders. Now Banba is a goddess; in the original story she must also have survived. According to the Chronicum Scotorum, in the year of the world 1599 there came into Hibernia a daughter of the Greeks called Eriu, Banba, or Cesar, but d'Arbois de Jubainville calls this legend a late invention.

Strathearn Perthshire Scotland History Ancient Times The oldest traces of people in Perthshire are of burial mounds, standing stones and circles from 3000BC. Given the widespread traces of these people the population of Strathearn must have been significant, however little is known about them. For an interesting perspective try Ancient Energy of the Earth in relation to the standing stones and circles of the Crieff area. Around 1000BC the first Celts known as Caledonians arrived. They came into recorded history by making none too friendly contact with the forces of the Roman Empire in 84AD. A great battle took place at Mons Grampius possibly somewhere in Strathearn. The Romans claim to have won this battle but only their version of events remains. Across the southern edge of Strathearn they then built a number of forts (Bertha, Fendoch, Strageath and Ardoch) connected by a line of watchtowers and fortlets. This appears to be the first Roman linear frontier (40 years earlier than Hadrian's Wall). Clearly the Romans considered the Caledonians to the northern side of Strathearn a significant threat. The Romans withdrew after a short time. Hadrian's great stone Wall, 170km+ to the south, was constructed 122-8.

Very early descriptive names were used to identify the purpose of the dog rather than to identify species. We find such names as "Irish Wolf Dog," "Scotch Greyhound," "Rough Greyhound," "Highland Deerhound." Dr. Caius, in his book Of Englishe Dogges (1576) speaking of Greyhounds, relates: "Some are of the greater sorte, some of a lesser; some are smoothe skynned and some curled, the bigger therefore are appointed to hunt the bigger beastes, the buck, the hart, the doe." All this is relatively unimportant when we can definitely identify the breed as Deerhounds as early as the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. From there on the term Deerhound has been applied to the breed, which of all dogs has been found best suited for the pursuit and killing of the deer.

Home The Picts were mighty warriors, holding off Romans, Angles, and early Vikings before their culture was absorbed by the Scots. Iron Age Picts built great duns (stone hill fortresses), crannogs (forts and houses built on stilts in lochs), and, unique to Scotland, brochs. Brochs are round stone towers, tapering inward as they rise from the ground. Hundreds may be found all over the Highlands and the Isles. The word Picti , means "painted" in Latin. Rather than painting themselves, as in popular myth, some historical records suggest they actually tattooed their faces and bodies.

Almost all religious movements that can be recognised as such in this world have compromised metaphysical knowledge in some way or another. Some movements may offer more relevant information than others. Few, if any, teach what can be recognised as the full truth.
Yet, there is something which some call "God", but which I personally prefer to call the "Source", the "Creator", or "supermind of space" which includes ourselves and is not just some divinity outside ourselves. It is truly powerful and works anywhere even in the most compromised of situations. That's why people of all faiths have experienced truly remarkable and divine things, non-regarding the fact that their faiths may have been corrupted by manipulators or not.

    Ancient History Celtic v Rangers - The Traditional View of Celtic History
    The traditional historical view of the demise of the Celts has the Roman legions blasting their way across Europe, massacring the Celtic tribes as they went and everywhere obliterating the traditional Celtic way of life. Everywhere that is except in plucky Ireland and obdurate Scotland whose populations remained invincible to the last - with eventually the great Hadrian admitting defeat and building a wall beyond which no civilised Roman would dream of venturing. The Roman way of life completely wiped out the Celtic traditions in England, and when indolence and excess finally caused the collapse of Roman Britain, and the legions left, the void was filled by marauding German bands of Angles and Saxons who came across the North Sea and pushed the remnants of Celtic England back into the western hills where they became Welsh and incomprehensible.
    Meanwhile, an Irish Celtic tribe called the Scotti liked the look of Islay and the green hills of Kintyre and Knapdale, and either thrashed the native Epidii, or more likely ravished their daughters and purloined their land. They formed the ancient Kingdom of Dalraida and eventually, through a series of wars with the remnant Scottish Celts (the Picts and others) united Celtic Scotland and formed Glasgow Celtic football club The Angles and Saxons however had grabbed Ayrshire, the Borders and the Central belt and set up Glasgow Rangers football club. These superficial religious and ethnic differences are swept aside in the modern world, as Scots of every shape, size and orientation come together at frequent intervals to form the Tartan Army which cheerfully wanders the globe to witness the glorious defeats of our national team.

    Ancient Scotland - Stone Age to Kenneth McAlpin (5000 BC - 843 AD)
    Summarizing several thousand years of the history of ancient Scotland is impossible in "25 words or less." If you like, skip Scotland's stone age, and click down to bronze age iron age (the Celts), Roman Britain (the Picts), or Dalriada (early Scottish history).
    Stone Age in Ancient Scotland
    Archeology is a fascinating field of study. You get to spend your life holding, for instance, a small carved stone ball up to the light while saying "What in the world did they use this for?" The two favorite words of archeologists? probably. possibly. Probably farming began to take hold in ancient Scotland around 4000 BC. Possibly the carved stone balls were used for a game. In the east, people were buried in large barrows (called cairns when made with stones). In the west, they used chambered cairns (everyone got their own spot). Later, possibly, these two cultures merged under the new technologies, greater population, and increased trade of the Bronze Age. Archeologists do magnificent work, bringing the past to light, but must walk a fine line between assuming ancient peoples thought exactly the way we do with very similar motivations and interests, or conversely lived in a world of such deep superstition and barbarity that we should be unable to relate to their concerns and activities in any way. It's a tough task. Once in a while, archeologists are rewarded with a very well-preserved site, such as Skara Brae in the Orkneys.

    Home About Orkney History Tradition ... Awards The Picts The language of the Picts One of the great mysteries surrounding the Picts, and one which has stimulated the most discussion and argument over the centuries, is the language they spoke. According to the few surviving historical references relating to their language, the Picts spoke a language of their own - different to the languages spoken by the other people of Britain. In his A History of the English Church and People , the venerable Bede wrote that at the time (early eighth century AD) there were five languages in Britain - English, British, Scots (Gaelic) and Pictish. But like the good churchman he was, he added "all are united in their study of God's truth by the fifth - Latin - which has become a common medium through the study of the Scriptures." Admonan's Life of Columba seems to back this up as it states that when Columba visited the court of the Pictish high-king Brude on the River Ness he needed a translator. This seems to imply that the Pictish language was different to the Scots/Irish Gaelic spoken by Columba.

    "Boadicea, or Boudicca, meaning Victorious, was Queen of the Iceni tribe of East Anglia. She led a rebellion in 60 A.D. against the Romans, destroying the cities of Colchester, St. Albans and capturing London. She was defeated by the Romans, and rather than be humiliated by them, she poisoned herself."
    Boadicea the Victorious

    Julius Caesar had started Britain's invasion in 55 B.C., but never really managed to impose his domination over the Britons[1]. It was in 43 A.D. that the Emperor Claudius ordered that Britain should be conquered. It is during this second invasion that Boadicea's story is set.

    Hadrian's Wall
    In 122 AD the emperor Hadrian visited Britain, a province that had been under Roman control for nearly a century but one that continued to be a source of trouble for the new rulers. Various tribes in Scotland remained wholly unconquered, and even in the more southerly parts of Britain, Celtic groups such as the Selgovae and Brigantes kept up their resistance. With these two tribes in mind especially, Hadrian ordered a wall to be built, and much of its ancient course remains visible today.

    Related Category: British And Irish History Picts, ancient inhabitants of central and N Scotland, of uncertain origin. First mentioned ( A.D. 297) by the Roman writer Eumenius as northern invaders of Roman Britain, they were probably descendants of late Bronze Age and early Iron Age invaders of Britain. Their language is thought to have been a superimposition of Celtic on a pre-Celtic and non-Indo-European language, but there is no undisputed interpretation of it or their culture. By the early 7th cent. there was a unified Pictish kingdom north of a line from the Clyde to the Forth rivers. It apparently had a matrilinear system of succession and had probably adopted Celtic Christianity. To the south of the Picts, Scottish invaders from Ireland had established the kingdom of Dalriada in the 5th cent. Between 843 and 850 Kenneth I , king of Dalriada, established himself also as king of the Picts, although how and why is not clear. The kingdom of Alba thus formed became the kingdom of Scotland.
