Why is there so little good info. About picts crafts
All most all history. Is 3rd party and mostly junk.
All tho the did have a world all there own.
Most books try to say. They where celts.
This is wrong. Any self repecting historion.
Backs away from that.
Scotts and picts are not the same. In pre roman history.
And even after. For a time.
Celts, scotts, brits and picts did mix after all.
Celts are not even native to the UK and Ierland
Thanks to the romans driving them out of the med
As i understand it.
Picts are more closer to nors and islandic peoples.
But in many ways. Not the same.
Family history and many years of reading about. You see the difereces
The Celts weren't just one group of people. Celtic refers to a whole ethnolinguistic group consisting of tribes across Northwest Europe who spoke Celtic languages and a Celtic culture. It doesn't refer to one group of specific people exactly. The Picts also weren't just one people, they were a large group of many kins or tribes. It's believed they probably were originally Scandinavian people and it's not an uncommon belief that they were ethonliguistically a part of the group considered Celtic. Some authors who have written on the history and language of the Picts are: Katherine Forsyth, Sally M. Foster, Dauvit Broun, and W.A. Cummins.
As for magic from them, you're probably going to find very little if anything at all as those Pictish kin were mostly of oral tradition other than the relics and carvings they left behind.
That there is no wrighten word found for picts
But i have seen. Over the last few years.
Its been found to a destinct group.
Need to find the universatys thats doing work.

Celt and celtic have been miss used for a long time.
I have found books out there on so called scottish/pict magick.
Most are sayed to be fluf
Yep, a lot of the books I've seen and read on Celtic magick tend to be solitary Wicca rehashed with a Celtic flavour (usually Irish or Scottish). It's unfortunate really. I'm a member of Ár nDraíocht Féin which is a kind of druid church that focuses on Indo-European cultures as hearth cultures. They try the best they can to be recon with what information we do know. There isn't a kin group for the Picts as far as I'm aware though. Might be worth checking out.
I only have one book on Druidic practice and it appears to be more of a magical practice inspired by the lore. Nifty little techniques that I've used since I started out, though it's not traditional by any means. The Picts seem to be a people that are glossed over in how they are represented in history, though I do have personal interest in studying them. I'll come back with anything I find, whenever I find something worth while.
" Theories abound, although these days it is generally accepted that the Picts were not, as was once believed, a new race, but were simply the descendents of the indigenous Iron Age people of northern Scotland"
