The Picts were long considered to be a mysterious lost people from a very dark age, to the extent that entirely erroneous origin myths were created for them in recent centuries. This tour will explore how, even though they left behind no surviving documents, the Picts helped lay the foundation of modern Scotland. Get insights into the most recent developments in Pictish archaeology, which will revolutionise our understanding of the Picts and their kingdoms.

Tour highlights:

  • View the important Pictish collection in the National Museum of Scotland
  • Explore masterpieces of Pictish carving, such as the St. Andrews Sarcophagus
  • Visit a chief royal fort of the northern Picts on the Moray Firth at Burghead
  • See most of the finest monumental Christian sculpture produced by the Picts
