Overview

First mentioned by name in AD 297, the Picts inhabited Northern Britain from the end of the 3rd century AD to the 9th. They rose to power in the devastation following Emperor Septimus Severus's repression of the Caledonians in AD 208, and dominated Northern Britain for over 500 years, before vanishing mysteriously. The Picts represent a high point of Celtic civilisation, remaining free and unconquered beyond the borders of the Roman world, and rising to become the first barbarians to form a recognisable 'nation'. This title takes a detailed look at their origins, and examines Pictish heroic and warrior society, covering education and training, appearance and equipment, the status of women, and the experience of battle.

You are panting, trying to catch your breath. You look around to survey your surroundings. With horror, you find that you are LOST in the middle of the forest. You star to run again. Rain begans to pour down. Lightning almost strikes you. Thunder gave a huge snarl. You run again, through mud and peat. A bramble tightly wrapps itself around your paw, jerking you down. Your stomache rumbles. Suddenly, you faint from breathloss and hunger. <p>&phone&phone&phone&phone&phone&phone&phone&phone <p>You wake up in a huge den, dry and warm. You sense a huge rabbit at your nose and you quickly eat it. A large black tom with hazel eyes looms over you. "My name is Opafur, deputy of HoneyClan." He meows. "Welcome to HoneyClan where you won't be ignored, abused, bullied or forgotten. We rarely have battles. You are at our camp, which is at 'honey tales' result SIX. Please join."
