Under the Sand
The Viking settlers at Skiall Bay in Sandwick, Orkney, built their homes to last, but would have been astonished to know that over a thousand years later there would be excavations to recover the foundations from the sand. What's more people from throughout the world are being asked to vote on their merit for an archaeological award. See this blog for more information.
