Female warrior, 16th-century artwork. This illustration (with later hand colouring added) was produced by Theodor De Bry and titled 'The True Picture of a Women Picte'. It appears in Thomas Hariot's 1588 book 'A Briefe and True Report of the New Found Land of Virginia' (in what is now the USA). De Bry included these images to show 'that the inhabitants of the Great Bretannie have been in times past as savage as those of Virginia.' The Picts were tribal people from eastern and northern Scotland who were culturally related to the Celts. They existed from about 500BC to 700AD.
