The talk will draw directly on the results of the University of Aberdeen Northern Picts and Leverhulme funded Comparative Kingship projects that have identified a whole series of hitherto unknown Pictish power centres and shed new light on long discussed, but poorly understood sites, helping reveal the pathways to power that Pictish rulers followed to create the powerful polities that dominated this region for over 600 years.
Professor Gordon Noble has undertaken landscape research and directed field projects across Scotland. He has worked on a wide range of landscapes and archaeology projects from the Mesolithic to Medieval periods.
The talk will also be recorded and attendees will receive a link to the recording afterwards, which will be valid for 7 days.
Professor Noble is generously donating his speaker fee and ticket royalties from this event to the Tarbat Discovery Centre.
