Julianna Grigg’s scholarly study examines a crucial stage in the emergence of Pictland as a cohesive nation with a dynastic kingship. She traces the factors that drove Pictish political consolidation back to sixth-century agricultural and settlement transitions and the influence of Christian foundations; but the main focus of the work is on the philosopher king Nechthon filius Derelei, whose reign illuminates the nature of early medieval kingship.
