Over 5,000 years old, Skara Brae is the best-preserved Neolithic settlement in Western Europe. First uncovered by a storm in 1850, this Neolithic village is remarkable for the quality of its preservation, including the furniture inside the houses. Skara Brae is a part of the Heart of Neolithic Orkney UNESCO World Heritage Site in recognition of its importance.
But this site is increasingly under threat as the changing climate brings with it more frequent and violent storms.
