The Stromness Museum is celebrating a £9,700 Heritage Lottery Fund grant as part of the Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology 2017.
Sunday, April 23, dawned with an early ferry crossing as the team from the University of the Highlands and Islands Archaeology Institute bounced over the Pentland Firth en-route to Caithness and the Swartigill archaeological excavation.
The excavation season at The Ness of Brodgar has just a few weeks to run. So it is a good time to take stock. Site Director Nick Card talks about the findings so far.
Two Excavations along the Westness shore start this week: at the coastally eroding site at Swandro and Viking Farmstead at Skaill, Westness, Rousay, start next week. Combined, these aim to investigate the deep history of this fascinating stretch of coast.
