Pictish Warrior AD 297-841 - WAR50
Pictish Warrior AD 297-841

First mentioned by name in AD 297, the Picts inhabited Northern Britain from the end of the 3rd century AD to the 9th. They rose to power in the devastation following Emperor Septimus Severus's repression of the Caledonians in AD 208, and dominated Northern Britain for over 500 years, before vanishing mysteriously. The Picts represent a high point of Celtic civilisation, remaining free and unconquered beyond the borders of the Roman world, and rising to become the first barbarians to form a recognisable 'nation'. This title takes a detailed look at their origins, and examines Pictish heroic and warrior society, covering education and training, appearance and equipment, the status of women, and the experience of battle.

Osprey's Warrior Series of books concentrate on the service conditions, dress and equipment, motivation, training, recruitment and experiences of fighting men and women. Uniforms and equipment are shown in exploded diagrams. Featuring specially commissioned colour artworks and illustrated throughout with black and white photography, Osprey's Warrior series is an ideal reference resource for re-enactors, military history enthusiasts, model makers and wargamers.
