The final lecture in the 2013/2014 season of the Pictish Arts Society will be given at Pictavia, near Brechin, by Lynda McGuigan on Friday, May 16.

The theme of Lynda’s talk will be the Logie Elphinstone stones.

Lynda is originally from Glasgow but currently lives in Aberdeenshire. She is a PhD Student studying at the University of Liverpool, looking at the 19th century Antiquarian Networks in Scotland with a focus on Pictish Stones. She currently works with Historic Scotland as the manager of Meigle Pictish Stone Museum in Perthshire.

Lynda’s lecture will focus on the four Pictish stones which were found at Logie Elphinestone in Aberdeenshire during the 19th century. The aim of the talk is to contextualise the symbol stones within their wider landscape taking account of other archaeological and topographical features in the area.

Doors open at Pictavia at 7 for a 7.30 p.m. start. Refreshments will be available before and after the talk. The talk is free to members and £2.50 to non-members.
