Over the last couple of weeks we have been having lots of fun, gaining plenty of inspiration and discovering exciting new things all based around this years dig at the Ness of Brodgar.

We popped over to the site one beautiful morning to catch up with the gang. We were welcomed warmly and shown some of the new finds.

It was the Ness of Brodgar open day on Sunday and some preparation was in hand.

It was a great day. About 1000 people visited the site on a beautiful warm sunny day. There was a buzz in the hall, lots of great chat, interest and delicious refreshments. Only one open day this year(usually there are 2) and I think the most was made of it and it will be classed as a great success.

A couple of the axeheads sold on the day, but there are a couple still available (check on the shop). I think Michael will be making these in the future too.
