After the first print-run of 1,000 copies sold out in January – just over two months after its release – The Ness of Brodgar: As it Stands is available to buy again.
The interim monograph is the third volume of the University of the Highlands and Islands research series and was hailed “a stunning accomplishment” by Mike Pitts, editor of British Archaeology magazine.
In his review in the March/April issue, he wrote that the book “has much to offer specialists” but that the “reader is lulled by the high production quality, the beautiful and lavish photography and the well-edited texts, which never forget the wider audience.”
UHI excavation at the Ness of Brodgar began in 2006 and the interim monograph presents over a decade’s worth of information on all aspects of the monumental Neolithic complex, providing a comprehensive and up-to-date account of the project’s findings.
Launched in November 2020, the book features contributions from institute staff as well as specialists from around the world. The result is 27 chapters, each devoted to different aspects of the site, its excavation and interpretation.
The second print-run arrived at the excavation HQ on Friday and can be bought here, priced £35.99.
All proceeds go directly to the Ness of Brodgar excavation fund.
