    New Written Language of Ancient Scotland Discovered

    http://news.discovery.com/archaeolog...-language.html

    "A new written language, belonging to the early Pict society of Scotland, has just been identified.
    Stylized rock engravings have been found on hundreds of Pictish Stones.
    If the writing can be deciphered, it would provide a unique insight into early Scottish history."

    I would really like to one day write a book on Rock-art covering the whole of British pre-historical from the Neolithic and Early Bronze age through to the historical period. Maybe when I have finished my thesis on the subject, on the Neolithic aspects I can extend it into the Iron age. I doubt that anybody else is going to beat me to it! There as not many of us who study it!
