The ongoing archaeological excavations at the Links of Noltland, in Westray, have been nominated for the prestigious  “Best Rescue Dig” award in the annual Current Archaeology awards.

The Links of Noltland, home to the “Westray Wife” figurine,  is the only Scottish candidate this year.

The site is at severe risk from erosion and recent work, funded by Historic Scotland, has made it possible to recover a wealth of new information about life in the Neolithic and Bronze Age periods.
