Summer of digging – Sanday update by UHI student Ross
The University of the Highlands and Islands Archaeology Institute has teamed up with the University of Central Lancashire to begin excavation at the exciting site at Cata Sand in Sanday, Orkney.
Professor Colin Richards of the University of Manchester writes about developments at the recently discovered Bronze Age settlement in Orkney.
Archaeological work is planned to evaluate the site at Cata Sand, Sanday, Orkney, in the week commencing 29th February. Preliminary investigation will use a variety of techniques including survey, geophysics, surface collection, auger and test pits.
Braving the weather in Sanday, Chris managed to take some quick shots of the newly discovered Bronze Age settlement complex. It was blowing a sandstorm at the time so please excuse the quality! But they are interesting nonetheless.
