Neolithic 'temple' revealed at site on Orkney

The Stone Age equivalent of a cathedral has been unearthed in Orkney, the largest structure of its kind found in Britain.

It dates to the Neolithic period (7000-1700BC) and was found not far beneath the surface of the narrow strip of land that divides Harray Loch from Stenness Loch on the Orkney mainland.

It is an area that is at the heart of Orkney's World Heritage Site which boasts extraordinary archaeological richness. The building has been found between two of of the most famous standing stones sites in the world, the Ring O' Brodgar and the Standing Stones O' Stenness.
