    Post Picts and Celts

    well the Tribe of Gael , Celts from Iberia it is belived invaded
    Ireland and then imposed their language and culture. now they
    eventually spread across into ALBA or Scotland. Scotti was
    the nickname for the settlers hence scots is derived from this.
    The Picts would have been the ab original Tribes there since
    the time of the Romans and before. Hence the tribe of Gael
    and its language Gaelige would be very similiar. in the
    scottish Highlands. isle of man. and Ireland. The Picts
    Language would be a different family tree most likely
    related to Welsh. hence the divide of Highlanders and
    lowlanders. however there common history shares
    much the same culture. WHITE. Therfore Picts or
    Highlanders . Celts all and WN . Welcome Here

    The Picts were a tribe of Celts. For example... the Celts were a culture and the Picts were a group within that same culture.

    Yes that's an interesting subject, I cant help wondering if there is some sort of legendary >Racial type< characterized as the (essential Celtic folk) like for example the Keltic Nordic or Brünn race type. or who was really the creator of the wide spread Celtic culture?

    The Picts were pre-Celtic people, and spoke a non-Celtic language. This is evidenced by the recorded fact that St. Columba's biographer clearly stated that the Irish saint needed a translator to preach to the Pictish King Brude, son of Maelchon, at Brude's court near the shores of Loch Ness.

    We also know that as far as the 9th century they wrote in stone a language which was not far in design from the Celtic "Ogham" script but was not Celtic in context.

    It is in the sculptured stones of Scotland, left behind by the Pictish and proto-Pictish people of ancient Alba and present day Scotland that we can find some information about a mighty race of people who defied and defeated Rome and who slaughtered the invincible barbarian hordes of Angles Germans at Nechtansmere in Angus, and hammered the invading Vikings back home thus forever preserving a separate culture and race in Scotland. It is in these sometimes mighty, sometimes delicate stones that the history of ancient Scotland is now recorded. Were they descendants of the ancient Basque people of northern Spain once known to Rome as Pictones, who then migrated to northern Britain after they had helped the Empire defeat the seagoing people of Biscay? Or are they descendants of the dark tribes of ancient Stygia and the huge Eastern steppes? No one knows - only the Stones.

    My ancestors came from the Nechtansmere area. I am proud to be Albannach - a Northern Pict.

    Post DNA could solve this mystery

    I wonder has any DNA survey been carried out on a cross section of
    scots. This could unravel the mystery. In ireland we found that we
    where closely related to Iceland. Their having been trade and a Viking
    colony sent from DUBLIN WEXFORD and LIMERICK ports of the NINTH
    century vikings in Ireland.NO surprise.. also another surveys
    use of people with Gaelige
    surnames found links to the Basques
    However Scotland too would have vikngs scotti and Picts
    my own Nephews
    are desendents of Borderers. who raided England. Their Scottish
    Grandpa reads a bible in scots. which is a Dialect of english which
    i find hard to understand . where does this Teutonic Dialect of scots
    come from if not picts JAB

    Hmmmm, yes, a DNA study would indeed be interesting.

    Also of interest is a Mediterranean connection. The Scots dialect is known as "the Doric" and is so described because it apparently resembles the Greek. I haven't heard Greek spoken but I imagined it to be more "liquid" rather than the guttural sounds of the Scots dialect with its glottal stops.

    No they were not. Like the Basques in the Pyrenees, they were a remnant of the original people of Europe before the Aryan invasions. They were white, though, no doubt about that.
