Secrets of the Ness of Brodgar: A Stone-Age Complex in the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site

Explore the Ness of Brodgar, a recently discovered, 5,000-year-old Neolithic complex in the heart of Scotland's Orkney Islands. Nick Card, excavation site director, is your guide to this World Heritage Site that was featured on a 2014 National Geographic cover.

This award-winning excavation redefined our views of the period and provided a sharp contrast to the Stonehenge-centric view so common for so long. The site was recognized by the American Institute of Archaeology as one of the great discoveries in 2009.

Admission to this Kaufman Theater talk is free.
