An exciting excavation, that has been going on since 2003 in Orkney, on a site situated between the Ring of Brodgar and the Stones of Stenness, has revealed a large building that is being called  a ‘Neolithic Temple’.  Walls are still standing up to three feet high in this cruciform building.  More information can be read here

Details of the  excavation, are kept in diary form which can be found on the Orkneyjar website; click on dates to see photographs of this incredible site dated to 5000 bc years ago.

The Great Wall of Brodgar, as its been dubbed, appears to go right across the peninsula and seems to separate the land of the living from the realm of the spirits at the Ring of Brodgar.
