The recording of Dr Ben Elliot and Dan Lee’s talk, delivered in Stronsay on September 13, 2022.
The discovery of flint tools dating to the Late Upper Palaeolithic/Early Mesolithic in 2007 led to excavation at Linkshouse and Mill Bay in 2008. This saw around 10,000 pieces of flint recovered as well as evidence of a very early prehistoric settlement.
The talk was preceded by a walk around Linkshouse and Mill Bay. Both events were part of the North Isles Landscape Partnership’s The Sea Around the North Isles project.
Our thanks to Roger Neville-Smith, who recorded the talk and allowed us to share his video.
