Since 2003, the excavation of a huge Neolithic complex, in the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site, has revealed a massive complex of monumental Neolithic buildings along with associated “artwork”, pottery, bones and stone tools.
Excavation will resume at the Ness of Brodgar in 2021 – although on a much-reduced scale.
If the current easing of lockdown measures continues, 2021 will see a seven-week excavation that will be very different to previous years with several measures put in place to keep our staff and visitors safe.
Although the dig will be open to the public between June 30 and August 11, 2021, to avoid crowding we can’t run our usual guided site tours and will not be able to accept tour or coach groups. The viewing gallery will not be on site and a one-way system will be in operation.
