STOP PRESS – Decorated stone recovered from interior of Structure Eight
Structure Eight – or more correctly an earlier building lying beneath it – produced another stunning example of Neolithic decorate stone today.
The stone, pictured above, was spotted by Lorna in the extraordinary light that raked across the site this morning.
It features four bands of decoration, but areas appear to have been worn away while the stone was in situ during its lifetime. Although found in Structure Eight, the stone was part of one of two buildings beneath it, Structure Seventeen, elements of which are protruding through the later construction’s floor levels.
