Tomb of the Isles Papay Launch

The UHI Archaeology Institute Tombs of the Isles community project reaches Papa Westray this week, with launch events on March 16 and 17.

A talk in the heritage centre will introduce Orkney’s Neolithic cairns at Beltane on Wednesday, March 16 (7.30-9pm), followed by the drop-in, at the same venue, the following day (10am-4pm).

The drop-in event will allow Eday folk to discuss their island’s tombs, view artefacts and explore the creation of island-specific “tomb archives”.

Launch dates for the remaining North Isles can be found here.
