The secrets of ancient Pictish symbols found in Scotland will be revealed at a talk next week.
Gordon Noble, who heads up Aberdeen University’s archaeology department, will explore new data on the origins and dating of the language.
Appearing on stone monuments throughout the north-east during the sixth to ninth centuries, their meanings are still only partly understood.
The talk will be held in Tarland’s MacRobert Hall from 7.30pm on Thursday and marks the end of the Cromar History Group’ 2017-18 programme of events.
Admission is £4 and includes tea and coffee on arrival.
