Pictavia will play host to a number of events over next week highlighting the history of Picts.

On Monday, September 10 towns around Angus take part in a Pictish Day Out - a chance to visit some of the most important sites of Pictish history in Angus.

Covering Pictavia, Aberlemno, the Meffan Museum in Forfar, and St Vigeans, the day will be guided by Dr Sheila Hainey of the Pictish Arts Society.

Lunch, transport and entry into all attractions is included at a total cost of £12. To book call 01356 623050.

On Thursday, September 13 from 2pm to 4pm there will be a Pictish question and answer time when Norman Atkinson, president of the Pictish Arts Society, will be on hand to give you the answers or most popular theories about Pictish life. Usual Pictavia entrance fees apply and booking is not required.

Until the end of October, a replica Pictish throne will be on display at Pictavia. This throne is based on an image on a carved stone found in Perthshire, and was commissioned as part of a partnership between The Glenmorangie Company and National Museums Scotland to support the study and understanding of people of Early Historic Scotland.
