After two years of disruption due to the pandemic, we’re delighted to be getting back out on site this summer.
Two UHI Archaeology Institute research excavations – the Ness of Brodgar and Skaill, Rousay – resuming on July 4, and the Swandro-Orkney Coastal Archaeology Trust team are back at the eroding, multi-period site at Swandro, Rousay, on June 20.
All this summer’s excavations are open to the public. For full details see Orkney.com’s latest post.
If, after visiting the digs, you’re still looking for archaeology, remember that the Orkney Museum’s exhibition on the Newark project runs until the end of October, as does the Stromness Museum’s on The Cairns.
Outside Orkney, the UHI Archaeology Institute excavation at Swartigill, Caithness, is due to resume on August 15, funding dependent, and run until September 9. Watch this space for updates.
