Throughout the history of Great Britain There have been countless peoples, some more remembered than others, but the first, perhaps remembered for that condition, were picts, who for many historians were not very good and who have even attributed events that surely would not have corresponded to them, although sometimes history is not fair with everyone.

According to a Penn State historian, this town can allow you to know a little more about the past of the island and what history would have been like without the Romans having intervened at any time.

As assured Benjamin Hudson, professor of history and medieval studies, the picts had a very forgotten aspect is that they hardly struggled to get their identity, suffering a great number of prejudices in his time. In fact, many Roman historians portrayed the Picts as true warriors of the wildest.

In fact, they had something that horrified many Romans and that he gave them enough respect among Caesar's legions, they painted, used different substances to smear the face and the rest of the body for war. The Romans, more earthy and studied, considered this an act of savagery and there were not a few who were afraid of the hordes of Picts.

But many historians totally rule out that the Picts were real savages. It is known that in addition to his taste for body decoration, the Picts were famous for the variety and quantity of works of art and sculptures they made, something that contrasts directly with that reputation, possibly badly given, of disrespectful warriors.

Hudson assured that they had a large number of monuments, where many of them were very similar to Stonehenge, which are found in burial mounds made with concentric circles, making it clear that the Picts were not as wild as they have always been described throughout history.

Likewise, many of his works are ornamented with a kind of writing that has not been translated, so I'm sure that this town still has a lot to say even though it no longer exists for many centuries, but it sure could shed a lot of light on much of the time nebula that exists in this period of Gran's history. Brittany.

Several studies are currently being carried out to learn more about this town so mistreated by history and that they will surely provide a lot of very useful information, both about the people themselves and others that proliferated after their disappearance.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
