Skara Brae

Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork

Skara Brae (Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork) by Kammer Taken August 1997: This is the imaginatively named 'House 1' with the Bay of Skaill in the background.

The 'dresser' is pretty obvious in this shot, but you can also make out three small stone tanks around it, thought to be used for preparing fish bait. Directly in front of the dresser is a stone seat, and the square area in the centre of the house (with dark sand in it) is the hearth.
