Some 5000 years ago there was, perhaps, a colony of artists in Westray, Orkney. Their legacy first came to light with excavations in 2009, again in 2010 and now, when a third figurine has been discovered. The details of this astonishing find - among the oldest works of art to have been brought to light in Britain - are on the BBC Website.
