Pictish throne built as part of new research project





A throne built to a design used by the ancient Picts has gone on display at the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh.

The seat was created by master furniture maker Adrian McCurdy who drew inspiration from stone carvings.

The Picts dominated Scotland north of the Firth of Clyde from the 4th to the 9th centuries AD.

Their symbol stones continue to intrigue historians.

The throne is part of a wider project investigating Scotland's early history.
