Archaeologists from the University of the Highlands and Islands Archaeology Institute, the University of Central Lancashire, School of Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage, Galicia, Spain and University of Cambridge, have now concluded that the structural remains are those of an Early Neolithic house (c.3400-3100BC) with associated occupation deposits, hearth and stone walls.
You are welcome to visit the three sites under investigation. The sites open at 10.30am each morning and closes at around 4.30pm. See https://archaeologyorkney.com/category/excavation-calendar-2018/ for more details and location.
This site also takes volunteers who email in advance to take part.
