Northern Picts

January 9 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

£3.00

We are delighted to welcome Dr Gordon Noble (senior lecturer of Archaeology at the University of Aberdeen) to talk about his work on ‘Northern Picts’, a major project funded by the University of Aberdeen Development Trust and Historic Environment Scotland researching the post-Roman societies of northern Britain. To date three major exhibitions of the work of Northern Picts have been on display at the Tarbat Discovery Centre and King’s Museum, Aberdeen. Northern Picts research has also featured on BBC 4 ‘Digging for Britain’ and many other media venues.

Dr Noble has undertaken landscape research and directed field projects across Scotland. He has worked on a wide range of landscapes and archaeology projects from the Mesolithic to Medieval periods. He was director and co-founder of Strathearn & Royal Forteviot (SERF), a successful archaeological project researching a site that became one of Scotland’s early royal centres.  Gordon has also worked on AHRC funded projects on topics from the third millennium BC to 19th century rural settlements at Bennachie and works with the National Trust for Scotland on hunter-gatherer landscapes in upper Deeside.
