Archaeologists study Ring of Brodgar

<  Archaeologists study Ring of Brodgar

From the BBC:

The Ring of Brodgar in Orkney is the third largest stone circle in the British Isles, but little is known about it.

A month-long programme of investigations will be undertaken by a 15-strong team.


The Ring of Brodgar is situated on a low-lying piece of land, separating the lochs of Harray and Stenness.

Other features in the area include the Stones of Stenness, a much smaller stone circle set within an enclosing ditch, Maeshowe, a Neolithic chambered cairn and a number of standing stones.

Harvard archaeologist Jason Ur, official archaeologist of The Mystery of the Haunted Vampire does not appear to be involved. We should use our stroke among archaeologists and get him in on this. It’s far from his usual haunts, but Scotland must be lovely this time of year.
