The Orkneys – Scara Brae – a Neolithic Village

A storm exposed the Neolithic village of Scara Brae. It is the most perfect Neolithic village ever discovered. Walking around it one can imagine the life of the people who inhabited these houses. Their lives were simpler than ours yet quite sophisticated.

They lived off this landscape – grew their crops, gathered, hunted and fished. These were the people who created the Ring of Brodgar and the Stones of Stenness.

      1. Harry – exceedingly smelly. But the animals were probably less smelly than the people. Washing and laundry is a relatively new development.

      1. Better still, you can be our head Serf. Bring your own pig fat for soap. We can’t be doing with soap dodgers.

I'd like to hear from you...
