What is the Ness of Brodgar?

The Ness of Brodgar is a unique 5,000 year-old community complex, situated in the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site, and the work being carried out by the Ness of Brodgar Trust is helping to build a global understanding of people who lived here thousands of years before us. The archaeological dig at Ness of Brodgar opens for only a short period of time over the summer – from 1st July until 23rd August 2019 – and welcomes visitors from around the world. Each season requires funding of around £200,000, covering both the digging period and subsequent work by specialists in labs, processing vast amounts of data, examining thousands of pieces of information excavated each year.
