Dunnichen hillfort : the building of a modern myth

Henry, DavidUUUU
Books
Subject: At the beginning of the 19th century, George Chalmers identified the site of this 7th-century Pictish victory as Dunnichen in central Angus. Since then, historians of the battle have assumed that a prominent hillfort on Dunnichen Hill played an important role in the outcome of the Pictish victory. This wide-ranging study attempts to reveal how this notion came about and why it has persisted, despite the lack of tangible evidence for a fort on the hill.
