Sculpted Stone, Skara Brae, Orkney 3D Model
This unusual artefact is best described as a sculpted stone, although it shares many characteristics with carved stone balls.
The artefact is most comparable to the three-spiked stone recovered from the Chambered Tomb at Quoyness, Sanday (https://skfb.ly/Hupn).
This artefact was found at Skara Brae, Orkney in the 19th century and dates from the late Neolithic (c.3200-2300 BC).
