The Archaeology Institute UHI organised a “Big Day Out” for the whole of Kirkwall Grammar School S1 (125 pupils) visited the World Heritage main sites for the day on the 12th May 2015.
Events were held at the main sites with a number of 20-minute workshops at each:
- Ring of Brodgar (walkover survey/GPS mapping, geophysics, field recording the stones)
- Skara Brae (Bones workshops – IM, Easter Island filming and interviews)
The event was a great success as the students engaged with the environment and the methods involved with archaeology. Due to this success the event is pencilled in for next year!
