Product Description


The archaeological sites of Orkney give us an unparalleled glimpse into prehistory. Inscribed as the 'Heart of Neolithic Orkney' World Heritage Site in 1999, four great monuments - the village of Skara Brae, the Ring of Brodgar, the Stones of Stenness and the burial mound of Maeshowe - are also at the centre of the archipelago's story. Caroline Wickham-Jones looks at what makes these monuments so special. She explores the Neolithic world in which they were built, how they come to be a focus through the ages, and what they mean today. Picts, saints, Vikings, antiquarians and tourists populate Orkney's past: a history which is channelled - like the sun entering Maeshowe on the winter solstice - through these 'dances of stones'.

A wonderful introduction to the history and reality of the islands of Orkney, north of Scotland. Indispensable for any visitor to the islands, as well as to those who can't get there!
