This discovery was a great gift for archaeologists! A stone covered with Pictish geometric carvings was discovered in Aberlemno, Scotland. The 5.5-foot-long (1.7 meters) object was estimated to have been designed about 1,500 years ago by the Picts, which were the Indigenous people of the region. The meaning of the symbols remains unclear, but the best guess for now is that they are “a naming system representing Pictish names,” according to Gordon Noble, the excavation leader and a professor of archaeology at the University of Aberdeen.
