Archaeological dig on South Ronaldsay

Last year I mentioned the archaeological dig that was taking place at "Banks'" in South Ronaldsay, one of the linked islands off the Orkney Mainland.  Season two has just started and Dan Lee, one of the Archeologists from ORCA (the Orkney Centre for Archaeology) has been posting some YouTube footage. There are other clips too if you go to Youtube and take a look. It's fascinating seeing a site unfold.

Dan is coming out to Graemsay on Saturday - not that we have made any new discoveries, but he's going to talk to us about some of the WWII history and take look at a couple of the sites of early Christian churches - though nothing is left of them now.

Anyway take a look at the video and see what new discoveries have been made on Mainland Orkney.
