      Session Titles: Fresh Pict: Fifty Years of Pictish Studies


      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 two sessions devoted
      to summarizing the state of research in Pictish Studies. The goal of these
      sessions will be the publication of a collection of proceedings as a
      fifty year follow-on to "The Problem of the Picts".

      We welcome talks and eventually papers on any of the following relevant topics:


      * Archaeological work, finds and interpretations
      * Anthropological and settlement studies
      * Political and military history
      * Pictish art (the symbol stones)
      * pre-Christian and Christian religions
      * The Picts in Literature
