The highly stylized rock engravings, found on what are known as the Pictish Stones, had once been thought to be rock art or tied to heraldry. The new study, published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society A, instead concludes that the engravings represent the long lost language of the Picts, a confederation of Celtic tribes that lived in modern-day eastern and northern Scotland.
I was reading the above article on Esoteric Source. They are a long way from knowing what the language on the stones conveys, and always will be without some kind of rosetta stone discovery. I wonder if the cup marked stone was deliberately used now, and in what context - more things I'll probably never know, dammit.
