Can anyone recommend a really good book on the Picts?



Books on The Picts 

Thanks for all the boosts re looking for good books on The Picts.

For those interested, here are the ones either recommended to me or which I've since come across and look good. I've just listed 3 more recent books, since it will have the latest research and theories.

1. The Picts: a history, by Tim Clarkson. This was recommended to me and I'm halfway through it and it's pretty good. It has a really interesting alternative theory on the Dal Riadian Scots (that I want to see what other historians say!). Mostly easy to read. Go for 2012 or 2016 editions, as includes updates that come out after the 2008 edition.

2. The King in the North: The Pictish Realms of Fortriu and Ce, by Gordon Noble & Nicholas Evans (2019) which is a series of essays of the most recent research, including archaeological. Not recommended, just one I found that interested me.

3. The Picts Re-Imagined by Julianna Grigg (2018). Only a short book (120 pages), but apparently brings together recent research (not available on Hive except as an eBook). Also one that just interested me.
