Tha a' chuibhreann chlaistinneach seo on chlo-bhualadh aig Ealasaid Shutharlanach, 'A Guide to the Pictish Stones', foillsichte an toiseach an 1897. Tha e air a leughadh an seo le Elizabeth Parker.

'Who were the Picts?'

The Pictish nation emerged from a collection of warrior Celtic tribes who, centuries BC, had emigrated from Europe into Northern Britain. They first came into documented history as a nation in AD 297 when a Roman writer, Eumenius, wrote that the Britons were accustomed only to fighting 'their half-naked enemies - the Picts and the Irish'. Thus they became a historical people at that point with a collective name and they remained a united nation until about AD 840 when the Irish Scot, Kenneth Mac Alpin defeated them, and the land of the Picts became known as Scotland.

They probably got their name 'Painted ones' from the Roman soldiers who patrolled the Antonine wall and had to deal with them face-to-face. The Irish called them Cruithni which translates as 'people of the designs'. It is almost certain that they tattooed or painted their faces and bodies. What they called themselves is not known.'

A chionn 's gur ann à Arcaibh a bha a h-athair agus à Fiobha a bha a màthair, tha Elizabeth Sutherland ag ràdh gur e tè Chruithneach a th' innte fhèin. An dèidh dhi trèanadh a dhèanamh aig Oilthigh Dhùn Èidinn, gus am biodh i na h-oibriche sòisealta, phòs i fear clèireach Easbaigeach agus rinn i a dachaigh ann an ceithir paraistean Albannach, a' fuireach mu dheireadh sa Chananaich air an Eilean Dubh.

Nuair a leig an duine aice dheth a dhreuchd ann an 1982, ghabh Ealasaid thairis Taigh-tasgaidh a' Ghroam ann an Ros Mhaircnidh agus 's i a rinn e na ionad nan Cruithneach. 'S e a h-obair air Coinneach Odhar, Fiosaiche Bhrathainn, a dh'fhàg i air a meas na neach-eachdraidh urramach. Bha an cuspair seo gu sònraichte iomchaidh oir 's ann ann am baraille teàrr aig Rubha na Cananaich a fhuair Coinneach Odhar bàs.

Bho chionn ghoirid tha i air tòiseachadh ag obair air eachdraidh na sgìre san Eilean Dubh le sreath de bhileagan airson Clo-bhualadh an Eilein Duibh.
