Gordon Noble and Nicholas Evans at Winter Words Festival


Perthshire and the River Tay were once thought to be the centre for the Pictish heartland of Fortriu but, through a revolution in Early Medieval history in Scotland, new evidence has shown that historians may have been wrong – it was actually on the Moray Firth. What are the implications of this discovery, how was it made and what work has taken place since to prove the new theory?

Join Professor Gordon Noble, Senior Archaeology Lecturer, and Dr Nick Evans, Research Fellow, both from the University of Aberdeen, for a fascinating discussion on the King of the North: to discuss and decipher what is known about this formative period in Scotland’s history – and what is still not understood.
