Gordon Noble at Spirit of Moray Book Festival
Saturday 21st September 2.30pm – Elgin Library – £5
Many years ago a revolution took place in Early Medieval history in Scotland. The Pictish heartland of Fortriu, previously thought to be centred on Perthshire and the Tay found itself relocated through the forensic work of Alex Woolf to the shores of the Moray Firth. The implications for our understanding of this period and for the formation of Scotland are unprecedented and still being worked through. The King in the North represents an exciting cross disciplinary approach to the study of this still too little understood yet formative period in Scotland’s history.
