Trench J's complicated wallsYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
This model from the Ness of Brodgar shows a small corner of Trench J’s 2021 extension, where the newly-discovered northwest wall of Structure 5 is showing some complexities. Photogrammetric models like this, where a small but complicated area is focused on, can be enormously helpful during the post-excavation analysis phase of work, as they allow archaeologists to digitally “re-visit” the site outside the summer digging season.
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!
