Ness of Brodgar and all things archaeology

This month's National Geographic features an excellent article about archaeology in Orkney and the great work being done by Orkney College's Institute of Archaeology.

The Ness of Brodgar has attracted worldwide attention since it was discovered and excavations began in 2003.  This year, that interest is culminating in a 26 page feature on Orkney's archaeological riches in the prestigious National Geographic magazine's August issue.  Orkney has been given the prized cover photograph too, so we can expect a good deal more interest in the Ness and our many other archaeological treasures, and with the article's focus on the Orkney College team leading the dig, we hope that many more students will be inspired to come to Orkney and study archaeology at the college's new Institute of Archaeology.  Where better to study than in the Heart of Neolithic Orkney - Orkney's UNESCO World Heritage site!
