There’s a brilliant book by our very own Dr Antonia Thomas PhD, a long-standing member of the Ness dig team and an acknowledged expert on Neolithic art.
Art and Architecture is Neolithic Orkney: Process, Temporality and Context is lavishly illustrated, with many photographs of some of the carved stones from the Ness of Brodgar. The book is available to download here.
There was a really good piece all about the Ness in the 24th July 2016 issue of The Guardian newspaper, which is well worth a read.
The Ness also features in the latest edition of Renfrew & Bahn’s Archaeology – the standard text book for undergraduates everywhere but a really useful book for all.
