Ever wanted to visit or volunteer at an excavation, but don’t know where to start looking?
If you really want to plan ahead, Orkney is the place to be. UHI Archaeology Institute, for example, has already released a lengthy calendar with lots of tours, as well as contact information for future community events. The Ness of Brodgar has also confirmed their dig dates (2 July to 24 August), along with information about guided tours, open days and talks. If you want to find all of your Orkney news in one place, make sure you’re following along with the Orkney Archaeology Society as well.
Most dates haven’t been confirmed yet, but you can get ahead of the game by keeping an eye on the right e-newsletters and social media accounts:
