We have begun a new series of articles on the archaeology of Orkney, a group of islands lying just off the northern coast of Scotland.

Interest in Orkney has surged dramatically since the discovery of the large Neolithic village at the Ness of Brodgar, one of the most important sites found anywhere in the world in recent years. Ongoing excavations there are rapidly changing our perceptions about how prehistoric societies functioned and has had an impact on the entire prehistory of Europe.
