The name ‘Pict’ comes from the Roman name Picti, meaning “painted people” and it is traditionally thought to refer to the practice of tattooing or body painting. Early medieval sources point to the Pictish language having been an Insular Celtic language, closely related to Brittonic. It is thought likely that the Picts were the descendants of native peoples of Scotland such as the Caledones or Vacomagi who lived in modern-day northern and eastern Scotland around 1,800 years ago. The Picts never went away and were crucial in forging the country of Scotland known today and many Scottish people are likely to be related to the Picts.
The story of local government structure in Scotland is a complex one. The current position is the outcome of three major reorganisations over the course of not much more than a century.
Up until 1890, there were 34 county councils whose areas had evolved over the centuries from the mormaerdoms, stewartries and sheriffdoms of medieval Scotland.
In 1890, the traditional counties were reorganised into 33 county councils, removing most of the enclaves and exclaves.
The biggest change until then came in 1975. Counties were swept away, to be replaced by 12 regions, with all those on the mainland being subdivided into between 3 and 19 districts each.
An equally dramatic change occurred in 1996 when the 12 regions were replaced by the current 32 council areas. Some of these reflect traditional counties that had disappeared in 1975, while others were based on regions or districts from the 1975 to 1996 era.
Since 1 April 1996 Scotland has been divided into 32 council areas, each of which is governed by a unitary council.
As a result of all these changes there remains considerable nostalgia amongst many in Scotland for the “lost” pre-1975 counties, and their names continue to crop up in descriptions of places and in addresses. You will even still find in fairly common use at least one name, Ross-shire, which technically ceased to exist in 1890.
Olde World Highlands
Edinburgh was the command central for Reset operations at the time of the early repopulation. Projects like the Combine Reaper/Harvester were ran from here as the Agricultural Revolution started here and fanned out. Not the growing, but logistics; land reclamation and development. The University of Edinburgh is where all the New World agents would recruit and debrief, and collaborate on international projects together, this is where the Great Reset was controlled and the fake timeline history was inserted. Language makers worked alongside mechanical engineers.
Edinburgh is the Capitol of Scotland, the Highlands, that means there was no mudflood here. There is still a point in time this was a completely empty city full of massive stone buildings, skyscrapers even, and out of place artifacts in the form of architecture. There are also brand new construction of buildings that look like they have been picked up and moved from Ancient Rome or Greece, the problem is, there was no Ancient Rome or Greece, they were invented, like Napoleon or George Washington to explain away certain elements of fake history. History is full of fictional characters and cultures.
By Ghost-City I mean there are virtually no inhabitants, or at least proof of. Entire cityscape shots might have a puff of smoke coming from 2 or 3 chimneys or you will see the occasional horse and wagon. There are mostly children as far as population, groups of children, admitted to be orphans from the Napoleonic Wars in mainstream history books (See how they use fictional characters to provide cover for the Reset and Repopulation?) but there was no Napoleon, the world was repopulated with orphans that were given a fake history full of warfare. I always knew this but to see it in imagery is something else. Occasionally there will be an adult with a top hat, a sign of a Resetter, throwing the ‘Hidden Hand’ gang sign (or maybe they are all habitual pocket-pool players).
This exhibition represents just some of the Cavaye Collection of glass negatives by Thomas Begbie. The collection was discovered in a house in St James’ Square in 1950, and is currently held at the City Art Centre. They cover a wide range of subjects, most notably Edinburgh’s Old Town, but also the coastal communities of Leith, Granton and Newhaven and further afield such as Roslin and Stirling.
Thomas Begbie was born in 1840 at St James’ Square, Edinburgh. Both his father and grandfather were lapidaries, and Begbie apprenticed to the trade as a young man. He took up photography in an amateur capacity from the late 1850’s, and joined the Edinburgh Photographic Society in 1867. Begbie appeared in trade directories from 1874, advertising himself as a professional photographer from 1879-1881. He died in 1915.
I cover alot of the early photographers and camera development on this site. In America we have Matthew Brady, Timmy Sullivan, and Alex Gardener. England has Roger Fenton, that shot the Crimean War, and his Brother-in-law, Felice Beato, that photographed parts of Asia, and the Middle East. Beato had a brother too, Antonio, and many works get attributed to him as well so there really is no distinction, labels are simply marker FA Beato. Another Reset photographer that covered the French Revolution and the iconic toppling of the Column on Vendome and the Paris Commune was Bruno Braquehais. There are more but these are the ones I have done extensive research on.
The thing these people have in common besides the obvious is they didn’t exist either. There may have existed a person with that name, date and location but the images put in their name were not shot by them. They are like a stock images file for the official narrative. Now we have another to add to our list.
Another thing worth pointing out is the same old schtick about the pics being ‘discovered’ recently and unexpectedly. The same thing happened with the French Revolution images, they were found hiding in plain sight on a shelf in 1970 while officials were preparing for a Commune Centennial party. Maybe you can understand why I’m skeptical. Now heres another instance the best collection of era photographs just appeared one day.
Just as with the French Rev there is little to no chance that these are from the year it reads on the box, which is 1865-ish. This place is completely deserted excepting the gaggles of children running the streets. I found these in the UK archives, they have been largely unmolested as far as photo-manipulation goes, certainly there is always the possibility during the digitization process things can be added or removed but I do not question their authenticity for the most part. Wiki Commons is another photo repository, Library of Congress another, these sources are not trustworthy and each one must be judged independently. In their defenses it seems the manipulations are related to the person and not the repository. That only goes so far though bc the source knows they are fakes but still treats them as the truth. Thats what gatekeepers do.
In 1950 some 450 glass plate negatives taken by the Edinburgh Thomas Begbie, which had lain unseen for about 90 years,were uncovered by a city Councillor- Stanley Cavaye. For a further 40 years they remained untouched until donated to the City of Edinburgh Art Centre. So its an inside job. Anything the Art Spooks do is only to promote the fake timeline. This also means Cavaye might not have had anything to do with them and the Art Spooks had them the whole time in their possession and came up with the bullshit story just bc thats what they do. If you work for the city in an official capacity and found something of that nature would you just forget about them for another near hal-f century? Doubtful, a patriotic sense of duty would demand they go out immediately and it would be considered a loss that they had been hidden away for so long. Nope, I aint buying that shit for one second.
Besides the fact they lie about everything, its their default setting, another problem arises when comparing to other images of the same period. The lack of people. These pictures are much older than the narrative says. Either that or all the other sources are fake, with the crowds and traffic photoshopped in.
Heres another photographer from the same period named George Washington Wilson, another Spook tribute apparition. His work is housed in the Rijksmuseum, forgot about those guys. Rijks is in Amsterdam, they are the gatekeepers of European history. I have found them to house images from the Matthew Brady portfolio of actors in Medieval costume. For reals, the title even says, ‘Actor’, that is evidence that they all work together, more accurately, they are all a single entity.
Not only are there droves of people but look how clean it is. There are images of the same building in the gallery below, no fucking way are they near the same time period.
This same street and angle are pictured in the gallery below, not only are there people here but the street lamp tops are different, I like to pay attn to the details like that. Theres alot of people too, not just a few. Some of the pictures have people but just like a handful, this is a busy street. The year is the same on both albums, they might trick you but they aint trickin me.
Its my Winged Lion I travel the World seeking out. I shouldve known, I wasn’t even looking for this one, its appropriate here though.
Burns was a nobody according to normie history, certainly not worthy of a Lion-Griffon monument, designed by a Hamilton at that. Funny it mentions the lions are a prize for the best dramatic performance and they are found in the most prestigious spots on Earth, thats bc the whole world is the prize and everything in it is a performance. “All the Worlds a stage.” The sign gives us a clue in the direction to look for the next entry of the Winged Lion and Serpent Slayer.
I have yet to come across any Serpents but this looks like it could be in a fairy tale book, there has to be some dragon symbolism somewhere.
