The Ring of Brodgar


We visited a world famous Neolithic standing stone ring yesterday afternoon. The Ring of Brodgar in Orkney Scotland is the third largest henge in the British Isles.

Perhaps my crock wasn't the best thing to put in the photo to give a sense of the scale of this mysterious prehistoric structure. 

What the actual structure signifies is definitely a matter of conjecture. 

Based on all the new archaeological findings there are some surprising interpretations of what actually went on here 5000 years ago. Visitors should be prepared for the unexpected when approaching any of the several megalithic structures in and around the Ness of Brodgar .
