Lesespuren, sehr gutes Exemplar. Text / Sprache: Englisch , The symbol stones of Scotland : a social anthropological resolution of the problem of the Picts , Anthony Jackson ; with drawings by Helen Jackson ; and diagrams by Anne Leith Brundle. Who were the Picts, and where did they come from? And where did they go to? In their strongholds north of the Antonine Wall, the Picts resisted the Roman legions, only succumbing much later to the Scottish king, Kenneth MacAlpin, in the mid-9th century A.D. But from that time onwards, they vanish from history and become a total mystery-their language, culture, artefacts, dwelling-places, even their burial customs are quite obscure to us. The only sure pieces of evidence we have are the unique symbol stones scattered over the landscape from Fife all the way up the eastern seaboard to Shetland. These symbols-animal and geo-metric designs-are generally found in pairs on upright stones. But what was their true purpose in Pictish society? Over the last fourteen years, Dr Jackson has been systematically analysing the combinations and distribution of these symbols, and has now arrived at a series of exciting and novel suggestions that bring the Picts out of the Dark Ages into the light of today's scholarship .... 9885A ISBN 0907618103 The symbol stones of Scotland , a social anthropological resolution of the problem of the Picts , Art, Pictish , Scotland , Stone carving , Scotland, Archaeology , Archäologie, Megalithic monuments, Ogham-Schrift gebraucht; sehr gut, [PU:St. Ola, Kirkwall, Orkney : Orkney Press,]
