Chapter Summary

The Problem of the Picts was an innovatory book which deserves to be commemorated fifty years after its publication. It broke new ground as "a composite work" (the editor's phrase) which brought together the expertise of several scholars who examined the evidence for the Picts from different angles. The Problem of the Picts cannot be considered, or understood, without an awareness of the role which F. T. Wainwright played in its genesis, for he was the inspiration behind it; his contribution to this and other multi-authored books forged a new approach in the post-war period, advancing a more popular academic publication programme. Wainwright's remarkable grasp of the different kinds of evidence for the Scandinavian impact on the Northern Isles resulted from his familiarity with the evidence for the impact of the Danes on Anglo- Saxon England.
