The University of the Highlands and Islands Archaeology Institute invites you to be an archaeologist for a day.

Join the team uncovering the story of this exciting site at our Open Day at Skaill Farm on the island of Rousay, Orkney.

The site is open from 10am to 4pm on both days, so come across to the island of Rousay and make a day of it…bring the children and they can join in too, finding out about our Viking and more recent past. There are tours and displays for those who don’t want to join the team in the trenches.

The site is located next to the beach and the Midhowe Broch and is also an ideal place for a picnic.

The ferry departs from Tingwall regularly throughout the day. The timetable can be viewed here.
