Dr Gordon Noble - The King in the North
14:30 - 15:30
Elgin Library, Cooper Park
Many years ago a revolution took place in Early Medieval history in Scotland. The Pictish heartland of Fortriu, previously thought to be centred on Perthshire and the Tay found itself relocated through the forensic work of Alex Woolf to the shores of the Moray Firth. The implications for our understanding of this period and for the formation of Scotland are unprecedented and still being worked through. The King in the North represents an exciting cross disciplinary approach to the study of this still too little understood yet formative period in Scotland’s history.
Dr. Gordon Noble is Head of Archaeology and Honorary Curatorial Fellow to the University Museums at the University of Aberdeen. He has also been director of the Rhynie Environs Archaeological Project. He is author of a number of books, including Neolithic Scotland: Timber, Stone, Earth and Fire.
