“It is plausible to conclude that, prior to 700, the Picts allowed and/or required women to fight.” Paul Wagner, Pictish warrior, AD 297-841There were, no doubt, many desperate occasions when individual Pictish women took up arms to defend their homes and families against marauders. From here it is a big leap to imagine formal recruitment of weapon-bearing females into the warband of a Pictish king.

In 843 Kenneth MacAlpin, ( Cináed mac Ailpín) son of Alpin, 34th King of Dalriada, asserted himself as the first King of the Picts and Scots.

The engravings represent the long lost language of the Picts, a confederation of Celtic tribes that lived in modern-day eastern and northern Scotland. The Picts had a spoken language to complement the writing of the symbols, as Bede (a monk and historian who died in 735) writes that there were four languages in Britain in his time: British, Pictish, Scottish and English.

The earliest surviving mention of the Picts dates from AD297. In a poem praising the Roman emperor Constantius Chlorus, the orator Eumenius wrote that the Britons were already accustomed to the semi-naked "Picti and Hiberni (Irish) as their enemies."
