Video: Death and burial in Neolithic Orkney (Part Two)

The second part of Professor Colin Richard’s talk for the UHI Archaeology Institute’s Tombs of the Isles project.

Funded by the North Isles Landscape Partnership (NILPS), Tombs of the Isles has documented the known, and suspected, chambered cairns in Orkney’s North Isles – and further investigated some.

In this video, Colin looks further at Neolithic mortuary practice and the Maeshowe-type chambered cairns.
