“Bringing the Late Iron Age to Life”
My persona, living in Orkney during the late 4th – early 5th century CE, puts me at the equivalent time period as the beginning of the Pictish era on mainland Scotland. There is still no irrefutable evidence that the Picts actually controlled the islands of Orkney at this early period.
I have decided to base my persona’s story as an amalgamation of archaeological evidence from Howe (which, unfortunately no longer exists as a dig site) and Warebeth on the Orcadian mainland. This is to hopefully help me flesh out what my diet, clothing, and daily living might have been like.
