Hello there, nice to meet you.
This is my space for researching 9th century Scotland. I'm writing a novel about Kings, warriors, bad-ass women, multicultural society and folklore. Particularly around the time that Cinaed mac Ailpin was King and the Picts began to 'disappear'. I have a huge amount to learn. If you are also interested in any of the above and can help me learn faster, please get involved in the comment sections.
I'm not a historian, but I am passionate about research and getting *closer* to the truth. So where possible I will try to reference primary sources, respected historians and archeologists. Sometimes, I will make wild guesses and get lost in imagination rather than what might have actually happened. I'll mark these with a big pink highlighter so you're a bit clearer that this is my (uninformed) guesswork.
