......The historians say that Christianity was taken to Pictland in the 5th century by Saint columba when in reality it had been here under a different name for nearly a thousand years ,.....

I have no desire to derail this potentially excellent thread but I can't resist asking exactly what do you mean?
I could guess, but I could be wrong.

Maybe another thread?

There are a number of walls in that area of the world.

In general these were known as the Caspian gates: Darial Gorge, Derbent, Rhaegae, Wall of Gorgan.

There are 3 in Turkey alone (including another, seperate, Caspian Gates).

All of those only block mountain passes though, they aren't 70 miles long.

This one is a puzzler, as even the archeologists that worked on it admit. It simply doesn't fit any one particular function.

I guess there is always the possibility that this wall is actually longer but they haven't found the rest yet.

If it is from the Persian Empire, as seems likely, it wouldn't have held the Scythians out as it wasn't a complete barrier wall.
