Ness of Brodgar; Orkney, Scotland Stone Age Temple. Not Elliot Ness.

Over in Orkney Scotland is a large Neolithic complex, an ancient settlement, a Stone Age Temple, the Ness of Brodgar.

Please open the following embedded link to read the news story by Ted Thornhill:

‘Discovery of a lifetime’: Stone Age temple found in Orkney is 800 years older than Stonehenge – and may be more important

  • The site contains 100 buildings, forming a ‘temple precinct’
  • Stonehenge may not have been the centre of Neolithic culture after all
  • It could take decades to fully explore and examine

I wish to thank MailOnine.com for publishing such an interesting story.

Ah! I bet you thought that somehow and somewhere in this Roland’s Ramblings entry that I was going to sneak in a reference to Elliot Ness. Well, guess what? I just did.
