    The question is, do the Picts still exist today as the Scots, much like the French exist as modern day descendants of the Gauls?

    The last leader of the Scottish Nationalist Party(the one who quit after the Scotland referendum, before the woman) looks very Pictish. That or he looks like one of the King Edward kicked out of England, fled to Scotland Jews.

    Quite sure the Scots have Pictish ancestry; they're the progenitors of Caledonia after all.
    The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.

    Modern people may have ancestry, and definitely do have, but awareness of it may not be on higher level. For example, the Obodrites, who were fighting with Germans, do not exist anymore as the Obodrites, and I doubt that people know their ancestry of hudreds of years before. Also, modern countries were created most often by conquering other tribes who lived on particular area. One tribe was dominant, conquered others, and a nation emerged - these people still knew who they are, but with every next generation people started to forget.

    So yes, Scots may have Pictish ancestry, what wouldn't be a surprise.

    The Picts were the name of the people in Scotland before the Gaels came. The Irish were called Gaels and the Scots were called Picts. They haven't disappeared only the name was changed. The Picts and Gaels amalgamated and Gaelic became the dominant Celtic language.

    http://www.ancestraljourneys.org/cel...ighlands.shtml

    The also spoke a Celtic language related to Brythonic.

    I don't know why anybody thinks they know what the Picts looked like or thinks that they would have looked any different to other British Islanders.
