Summer exhibition puts spotlight on the people of the Ness

Ness of Brodgar summer excavation detailsWe’re delighted to announce that we’ve got an extra event running over the 2022 dig season – a six-week exhibition in Stenness village.

Entitled The Ness: Its people, the exhibition is running in Historic Environment Scotland’s Maeshowe Visitor Centre on weekdays from Monday, July 11, until Friday, August 12.

It will also run on our open day, Sunday, July 31.

We’ve always wanted to display finds to site visitors but have struggled with the costs of doing so.

This year a grant from the Orkney Islands Council Culture Fund has made it possible, along with the generosity of Historic Environment Scotland.

Katy Firth and Norna Sinclair from the Stromness Museum are designing the exhibition with the Orkney Museum and Stuart Wylie, of Orkney Crystal, helping out with display cases.
