A January meeting in Orkney

Earlier this month Jessica flew out to Kirkwall for the first proper project meeting with PTP’s Orcadian collaborators: Jane Downes, Ingrid Mainland and – added bonus – Colin Richards. Together they hold a wealth of information about the islands’ Neolithic and Bronze Age archaeology and a very valuable day was spent troubleshooting and talking through sampling strategies for the coming months. On the drive back to the airport, we even managed to squeeze in a quick tour of the main passage tombs and associated settlements. Unfortunately, both the light and rain clouds were low so all Jessica managed to successfully snap was Kirkwall airport! We’ll have to wait till we’re back again in the summer…
