History Scotland's newest online event is 'Discovering The Picts', a lecture by Professor Gordon Noble, University of Aberdeen.
The online talk will draw directly on the results of the University of Aberdeen Northern Picts and Leverhulme funded Comparative Kingship projects that have identified a whole series of hitherto unknown Pictish power centres and shed new light on long discussed, but poorly understood sites, helping reveal the pathways to power that Pictish rulers followed to create the powerful polities that dominated this region for over 600 years.
Professor Gordon Noble MA (Aberdeen), MA (UCL), PhD (Reading), FSAScot is based in the department of Archaeology at the University of Aberdeen. He was appointed as lecturer to the department at Aberdeen in July 2008. In 2012 he became Senior Lecturer, Head of Department in 2015, Reader in 2017 and Professor in 2019. He is also a Honorary Curatorial Fellow to the University Museums.
Professor Noble has undertaken landscape research and directed field projects across Scotland. He has worked on a wide range of landscapes and archaeology projects from the Mesolithic to Medieval periods.
