Inside and Out

The Tomb of the Eagles at Isbister, South Ronaldsay, Orkney, dates to Neolithic times and was probably in use for a thousand years. It became an ossuary, with 16000 human bone fragments and the remains of over 700 birds, mainly sea eagles, found. Details of recent repairs and historical insights are to be discovered in this Orkney News item, published in May and anticipating completion by last month.
