Next year’s excavation at the Ness of Brodgar will run from Monday, July 4, 2022 until Friday, August 19, 2022.

Naturally these dates depend entirely on pandemic developments but, all going well, we are hoping to re-open the entire site next year. That said, the excavation team will be smaller than usual and we will not be able to accept volunteers in 2022.

There are, however, a few spaces for very experienced excavators – particularly those familiar with digging complex Neolithic sites. Contact nick.card@uhi.ac.uk for more details.

The Finds Team will also be much restricted in size from previous years. It will consist of very few members, committed to it for six or seven weeks, with a strong archaeological background.  Enquiries to anne.mitchell@uhi.ac.uk.

The site is open to the public between July 6 and August 17, 2022.
