New excavations to find a kingdom of the Picts

Archaeologists plan to increase excavations to find one of the lost kingdoms of the ancient Picts, a tribe of legendary warriors whose empire stretched from Fife to the Moray Firth, before their mysterious disappearance.

Until recently, historians believed that Fortriu, one of the most powerful kingdoms of "the painted people", was in Petrhshire. However, recent studies have located the Pictish Fort much further north of the Moray Firth area.

Today it has been discovered that a team of archaeologists from the University of Aberdeen is preparing to begin a series of excavations on the Ross-shir peninsula, where archaeologists uncovered evidence of the only Pictish monastic settlement found in Scotland to date.

I am currently studying Journalism and Audiovisual Communication at the Rey Juan Carlos University, which has made me inclined towards the international section, including the study of languages. For this reason, I do not rule out dedicating myself to teaching. I also like to practice physical exercise and spend a pleasant time chatting with my acquaintances and with new people. Lastly, I enjoy traveling to know the authentic culture of each region of the world, although I admit that before I need to find out as much as possible about the place I'm going to visit, to fully enjoy the experience.
