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.

'Pictish place names

There are many surviving Pictish place names, of which the most important is 'Pit', meaning a portion of land. Thus when we visit Pitlochry, Pittenweem, Pitodrie or Pitcaple - about 100 place names in all include 'Pit' - we know that the Picts were there before us.

Pictish Society

The Picts lived in a pyramidal society ruled by a high king, provincial kings and a warrior/priesthood elite. Craftsmen such as ironsmiths, jewellers, bronze-workers and sculptors were well-respected and had their workshops close to or inside the royal forts or palaces. On a par with craftsmen were probably horse-breeders and land-owning farmers. Pictish economy was based on agriculture.

Apart from the elite, the Picts were principally cowboys whose farming methods were to change little over the centuries until the disastrous Battle of Culloden (1746).

The King List

A list of high kings, their names, dates and the names of their fathers has survived in several forms as the only piece of near-contemporary documentary evidence thought to have come from the Picts themselves. It was probably kept in Iona or one of the Pictish monasteries - we don't know which - and fortunately copied by Irish annalists. This record is considered accurate from c. 550 and the reign of Brude mac Maelcon in Inverness.'

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.
