The idea that the Picts were not Celts was popular about twenty or
thirty years ago and still circulates in popular writings as opposed to
scholarly ones. However, the latest opinion is that the Celts arrived in
Ireland and Britain in several waves and that Picts were Celts who
arrived fairly early on.
