The archaeological work at the Ness of Brodgar is being followed worldwide. Although excavations couldn’t proceed this summer, the study of the vast amount of data and finds from previous years has been continuing, as director Nick Card explains. Two other members of the UHI Archaeology Institute team at Orkney College describe ongoing scientific analysis of the finds. Dr Ingrid Mainland speaks on the animal teeth found over time and the clues to a possible marine diet, and Dr Scott Timpany describes plants, pollen and Brodgar’s Neolithic landscape. All the speakers are Fellows of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland who’re hosting and highlighting the session.
