The Picts – Question and Answer Time

Thursday 13th Sept, 2-4pm

Where did the Picts live? What did they eat? What were their religious beliefs? Why did they carve symbols into stones?

The Picts left no written legacy, and much of their life remains a mystery, but if you would like to know more or have any questions you would like answered, then come along to this informal session. Led by Norman Atkinson, President of the Pictish Arts Society, you will be able to sort the fact from the fiction. Usual entry fees apply and booking is not required.
