'[A] word that with its cultural and political connotations is less than helpful'? Exactly. Dr Hunter's been co-opted into the media push for nationalism up here north of yon Imperial Wall. Archaeology's so-o useful for hi-jacking ideas to reinforce a 'history' - even if said archaeology's in N. Africa.
To my knowledge, it's been posited Boudicca wore something similarly patterned? Does that make her, too, an ancient Pict or Scot? No? I thought not. ...
To my further knowledge, none of our current travel-rug tartans are accurate. They were a product of a post-Jacobite Victorian enthusiasm.
