Investigating a prehistoric complex in the Heart of Neolithic Orkney
A day of sandbags, tarps and tyres…
It’s been a long, hard day of manual labour in some not-so-pleasant weather conditions, but we’ve covered over around 90 percent of the site.
Aided by volunteers from the public as well as a group of Highland Park Distillery staff, great progress was made cocooning the archaeology with protective sandbags, black plastic and tyres (hundreds of them). To all who turned out to help, you have our heartfelt thanks.
The final section of the site will be covered over tomorrow morning and then we all drift our separate ways, hopefully to return again next year, funding permitting.
A reminder that the site is now closed to the public. An equally heartfelt thanks to the thousands of visitors who dropped in over the past eight weeks and all those who donated to excavation funds and bought goodies from our shop.
