Excavation of a Neolithic stalled tomb at Tresness, Sanday, Orkney

Dr Hugo Anderson-Whymark, Curator of Prehistory National Museums Scotland, will present findings from recent excavations of an eroding Neolithic tomb on the island of Sanday, Orkney. The excavations have revealed an exceptional sequence of deposits within the chamber that shed considerable light on activities undertaken at the monument. Artefacts recovered include two polished stone balls, that allow several comparable finds to be set in context.
ALL WELCOME. Members and students free. Non-members £2 on the door
