Dunadd Iron Age Hillfort and the first court of the kingdom of Dal Riata, Argyll, Scotland, 15.4.17. The site is known for its unique stone carvings, unique landscape and the copious numbers of archaeological artefacts retrieved from this location. The flat stone outcrop pictured features a pictish boar, ogham script and a carved stone footprint. The site plays an important part in Scottish history and it is thought to be the home of the first Scottish rulers.

‘Mr and Mrs Meself’ stones were scattered across the various locations of our Aboriginal Ngurra Camp and Arts Workshops in May. The simple art pieces were used as a stimulus and teaser for ‘The World Serpent’ fireside story telling late at night.
