Definition: Fierce, warlike people who inhabited what is today called Scotland. The Romans saw the Picts as ever encroaching on Roman territory. The Picts fought with the Scots against the Romans, a struggle ending with the Roman victory under Agricola at Mons Graupius in 79. Hadrian's Wall was built in part to keep the Picts in Scotland.
