Chapter Summary

This chapter explores the issues of cultural biography, landscape and Pictish sculpture. The three are closely interlaced, connected by their focus, the free-standing crosses from Dupplin and Invermay and the related fragments from Forteviot, the early medieval power centre in Strathearn, some 10 miles south of Perth, Scotland. The chapter begins with cultural biography, which is certainly a new approach to researching Pictish sculpture (and material culture generally) that has arisen since Wainwright and his colleagues produced The Problem of the Picts. The chapter also explains something of the oppositional situation of the Invermay and Dupplin crosses, interlacing this with episodes from their later life stories.

Keywords: cultural biography; Dupplin cross; Forteviot; Invermay cross; Pictish sculpture
