Neolithic Stalled Cairn, Tres Ness, Orkney 3D Model
This early Neolithic (c.5500 year old) stalled burial cairn is located at Tres Ness, Sanday, Orkney. Coastal erosion has taken taken its toll on this scheduled ancient monument and a significant portion of the cairn has fallen into the sea.
In order to prevent the loss of valuable archaeological evidence the chamber of this tomb is being excavated as a collaboration between Prof Vicki Cummings (University of Central Lancashire), Profs Jane Downes and Colin Richards (Archaeological Institute, University of the Highlands and Islands) and Dr Hugo Anderson-Whymark (National Museums Scotland). Further models will be released as the monument is uncovered.
