The Picts: A History By (author) Tim Clarkson. Pictish history is recorded only in fragments presented by writers whose lords and masters were often bitter enemies of the Picts.

Here’s the problem with most lists of the best picture books: Those lists typically leave out two of the most important criteria for deciding whether a picture book really is the best.   Much has been written about the archaeology and culture of the Picts in recent years, but the historical problems have received less than their fair share of attention. Attempting to redress the balance, this book provides a fresh look at the whole Pictish story, placing it firmly in its true historical context and reassessing topics such as Brand: The History Press.
