Pictish studies is undergoing significant revision and invigoration, with recent archaeological discoveries and new methodologies in archaeology, cultural geography and art history prompting a re-assessment of Pictish cultural and social development. We can now say more about the cultural and political lives of the Picts than ever before, and these new findings are enabling a fresh perspective on the wider development of Early Medieval polities across the Latin west. This short book provides an exciting and informed synthesis of our current understanding of Pictish history and material remains.

Local histories and senses of identity are linked with national trends and events, including the inauguration in 1999 of a devolved Scottish Parliament. Chapters on the Picts and on the Covenanters of the seventeenth century show how historical memories of diverse kinds feed into contemporary identities. Minorities and Memories makes a creative contribution to the development of historical anthropology as well as to studies of senses of identity in general and within Scotland itself."--BOOK JACKET.

This edited volume delves into the current state of Iron Age and Early Medieval research in the North. Over the last two decades of archaeological explorations, theoretical vanguards, and introduction of new methodological strategies, together with a growing amount of critical studies in archaeology taking their stance from a multidisciplinary perspective, have dramatically changed our understanding of Northern Iron Age societies. The profound effect of 6th century climatic events on social structures in Northern Europe, a reintegration of written sources and archaeological material, genetic and isotopic studies entirely reinterpreting previously excavated grave material, are but a few examples of such land winnings. The aim of this book is to provide an intense and cohesive focus on the characteristics of contemporary Iron Age research; explored under the subheadings of field and methodology, settlement and spatiality, text and translation, and interaction and impact. Gathering the work of leading, established researchers and field archaeologists based throughout northern Europe and in the frontline of this new emerging image, this volume provides a collective summary of our current understandings of the Iron Age and Early Medieval Era in the North. It also facilitates a renewed interaction between academia and the ever-growing field of infrastructural archaeology, by integrating cutting edge fieldwork and developing field methods in the corpus of Iron Age and Early Medieval studies. In this book, many hypotheses are pushed forward from their expected outcomes, and analytical work is not afraid of taking risks, thus advancing the field of Iron Age research, and also, hopefully, inspiring to a continued creation of new knowledge.

The answers put forward in this book provide a fresh perspective on Scotland's relationship with Britain. Broun challenges the idea that the Scots were an ancient nation whose British identity only emerged later on, in the early modern era, and provides new evidence that the idea of Scotland as an independent kingdom in actual fact predated Wallace and Bruce. This leads him to radically reassess several fundamental issues: the fate of Pictish identity and the origins of Alba; the status of Scottish kingship vis-a-vis England; the papacy's recognition of the independence of the Scottish Church; and the idea of Scottish freedom. He also sheds new light on the authorship of John of Fordun's 'Chronicles', the first full-scale history of the Scots and explains, in historical terms, the widespread English inability to distinguish between England and Britain. Broun places his arguments in the wider context of the concepts of ultimate secular power in Britain and Ireland and the construction of national histories which were emerging in the middle ages. In conclusion, he casts a fresh aspect on how a Scottish national identity emerged and how the medieval era and, more specifically the Scottish nation, contributed to what is often regarded as an exclusively modern phenomenon.

Over the past decade the historically strife-ridden and impoverished nation of Ireland has emerged as one of the economic and social miracles of Europe. A booming software-based economy dubbed "the Celtic Tiger" has spurred an escalating standard of living, an influx of diaspora returnees and other immigrants, enormous growth in housing and infrastructure, and an uncommon flourishing in the arts. As a result, the Irish find themselves confronted with a new set of questions about who they are, where they are going, and how they will get there.The present volume is the outgrowth (though not the proceedings) of an unprecedented conference featuring more than one hundred renowned Irish writers, scholars, artists, musicians, and political and religious figures, who converged in Charlottesville in May of 2003 under the auspices of the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities. Over four days, participants engaged in a broad and lively consideration of the present realities and future trajectory of Irish culture: Re-Imagining Ireland, the book, comprises a generous and varied sampling of their voices and views. Each of the ten main essays is followed and beautifully complemented by shorter, topically related pieces from the likes of Roddy Doyle, Colm Tóibín, and Frank McCourt, among others. The essay by Declan McGonagle, chairman of the Department of Art and Design at the University of Ulster, is supplemented by a selection of images from the Irish Museum of Modern Art, which were featured in a special exhibition at the original conference. This volume also includes a DVD of the companion documentary film Re-Imagining Ireland, which has aired on several PBS stations as well as on RTÉ (Irish public television).

This study documents excavations by Peter Gelling of Prehistoric, Pictish, Viking and later remains at Skaill from 1963-1981. The earliest evidence of occupation was provided by ard-marks cut into the subsoil, which relate to cultivation in the Early-Middle Bronze Age. Two stone-built structures were also found, dating to the Late Bronze Age. Iron Age occupation centred on a substantial round house with adjoining structures. Continuity of occupation into the 7th/8th centuries was suggested by a handful of artefacts from both this and the Late Bronze Age settlement. Settlement of the Norse period was found at a third location, where a sequence of five superimposed buildings were uncovered and substantial remains of a medieval building overlay the Norse remains on another site.

Reading is not an end in itself. As Lorraine Wilson reminds us: "We read to do something else...to follow directions, to make something, to relax, to learn about community events...reading is social practice." We read to live, according to our individual interests and needs. So it makes no sense to separate the teaching of reading from the lives of children. Unfortunately, in many state-mandated curricula, that relationship has been lost. In Reading to Live, Lorraine Wilson makes a strong case for preserving integrated, holistic reading programs, debunking the belief in one-size-fits-all instruction and taking us inside classrooms to demonstrate progressive, meaning-centered teaching. She offers easy-to-use strategies that build upon the life experiences and language that children bring with them to school. Most important, she expands upon the reading practices of Luke and Freebody's Four Resources Model-code breaker, text participant, text user, and text analyst-and details many techniques for developing these practices through holistic integrated learning. In preparation for today's world, children need more from their reading programs than just learning how to break the code-they need to engage with all reading practices, especially critical literacy. With tips on physically arranging classrooms, techniques for effectively grouping children, as well as advice on organizing precious class time, Wilson ensures that teachers have the tools to tailor their reading programs to the lives of the children they teach.
