Join us for Secrets of the Ness of Brodgar - A Stone-Age Complex in the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site presented by Nick Card.

The Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site in Scotland is renown for some of the most iconic prehistoric monuments of Atlantic Europe. Recent research and excavation in this area have led to the stunning discovery of a Neolithic complex at the Ness of Brodgar. These excavations are revealing a 5,000-year-old complex, socially stratified, and dynamic society. Nick Card is the ORCA Senior Projects Manager, at the University of the Highlands and Islands and a member of the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site Research Committee.
