A few photographs from today’s “Uranium Walk” led by ORCA’s Lifelong Learning and Outreach archaeologist Dan Lee and anthropologist Dr Richard Irvine from the University of St Andrews.
It was perhaps fitting that the weather conditions experienced today were much the same as they were back then – damp and misty…
Our thanks to everyone who turned out for today’s walk and the talk at Cairston Mill, Stromness, later in the afternoon.
The next project event takes place on Wednesday, August 25, and is a walk around the Flotta oil terminal and a discussion on the coming of oil and the changes in the Orcadian landscape.
Anyone interested will need to book the Houton to Flotta ferry at 8am, returning to the Mainland at 4pm. Because numbers are limited, booking is essential. Email Enquiries.ORCA@uhi.ac.uk.
