About this book

On the edge of Britain, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the North Sea, lie the Orkney Islands, renowned for their seascapes and wildlife. It is an ancient land; fossils millions of years old have been found on the islands. Orkney's archaeology has World Heritage status, with its stone circles, chambers and a growing number of fresh discoveries.

This book brings together many aspects of Orkney, looking afresh at a variety of traditional topics and bringing to the fore many new developments.
