Structure 5, Ness of Brodgar 2021Your model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
Structure 5 is in Trench J at the Ness, and is one of the earlier buildings to be excavated at the site. In the 2021 season the trench was expanded to uncover more of the building’s northwest wall, allowing us to gain a deeper understanding of how the building was constructed and modified over time.
The Ness of Brodgar is an archaeological excavation covering an area of 2.5 hectares in the Heart of the Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site, in Scotland. It has revealed a well-preserved and sophisticated complex of 5000-year-old stone buildings, unlike anything seen before in northern Europe.
Excavation on this scale is expensive: each season costs over £200,000 for the digging and the analysis by specialists that follows. Please help support the project by donating to the Ness of Brodgar Trust!
