Skara Brae

Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork

Skara Brae (Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork) by Kammer Taken August 1997: On the left of this shot is 'House 9' and to the right is 'House 10', both part of the old village (peeking out from underneath the 'new' village).

As with the older houses there is a square hearth in the middle of House 9 (filled with darker sand). The beds (in the foreground and on the opposite side of the house) are set into the walls, which differs from the design of the newer houses where the beds project out into the room.
