A Long Preview

Take a close look, and then a longer one, at this piece of Neolithic art that has surfaced at the Ness of Brodgar, Orkney. It is one of the finest examples of its kind unearthed by archaeologists in Britain and is earning the Northern Isles site the title of 'Neolithlic Cathedral'. Read on at The Orcadian and consider how around 4,500 years have passed from execution to this display of workmanship and artistic endeavour.
