Exhibition showcases life at Brodgar as Ness dig resumes

An aerial view of the Ness of Brodgar excavations.

A new exhibition will shine a spotlight on the people of the Ness of Brodgar, as annual summer excavations resume in earnest.

For the first time since 2019, a full team of archaeologists will be back at the Ness of Brodgar next week.

A full cohort of excavators means that all three main trenches will be reopened, although not all the structures will be looked at this year.

Meanwhile, a five-week exhibition in the nearby Maeshowe visitor centre will give visitors a different view of what has been discovered by archaeologists so far.
