The objective of this thesis is to provide a comprehensive and accessible guide to the relatively wide range of Medieval insular sources which, although often cited, in many cases lack authoritative treatment or any treatment at all. It contains a systematic analysis of selected texts which have an emphasis on the origin legends and mythological history of the Picts and Scots. The main body of the thesis is comprised of two parts. The first consists of transcriptions of texts with translations of Medieval Celtic material which discuss the legendary beginnings of the Picts and Scots. The second consists of charts and notes which fully analyse the characters, tribes and places as found in these legends in reference to several genres of Medieval Celtic literature. The evidence is presented in tabular form which allows for textual comparison, and in notes discussing the occurrence and significance of all the names analysed.
