Abstract

The year 2005 marks the 50th anniversary of the publication of F. T. Wainwright’s The Problem of the Picts, the seminal work marking the first collection of modern archaeological and historical studies of the Picts in Scotland. The Northern World book series is sponsoring sessions devoted to summarizing the state of research in Pictish Studies. The goal of these sessions, and of sessions to be sponsored at the Medieval Congress, Kalamazoo, MI, will be the publication of a collection of proceedings as a fifty-year follow-on to The Problem of the Picts.
