During 2016, the University of the Highlands and Islands Archaeology Institute worked in partnership with Orkney Archaeology Society to undertake an exciting new field walking project within the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site Buffer Zone (HONO WHS), West Mainland, Orkney. The aim was to provide hands-on training and memorable experiences in field archaeology to the local volunteers using a field walking project in the iconic landscape of the Orkney’s World Heritage Site at Maeshowe and Brodgar. By its very nature, field walking allows us to explore the spaces in the landscape between the well-known sites. This contributes additional layers of interpretation to this complex landscape which contains traces of inhabitation spanning the last 5000 or so years: some visible on the ground surface, others not.
