    ... excavation. There is plenty of evidence of agriculture and trading, so archaeologists believe that Orkney was an important destination in the Neolithic world. It has been a pretty amazing experience to see and touch the work of people who lived 5,000 years ago. And to witness the hard work it takes to get the Ness site ready for another summer of exploration. We'll be reading the daily blogs and hoping to make another trip to this fascinating place.

    Today was our trip to the Orkney Islands. We drove to John O'Groats to catch the Pentland Ferry across the Pentland Firth to the island of South Ronaldsay, a 50 minute journey.

The Pentland Firth is one of the busiest waterways in the world, with around 6000 ships per year passing through. It has tidal currents up to 12 knots. The crossing in ...

The fresh berries here are divine. Nothing like Australian berries. Even the strawberries taste better than our home grown ...

    ... in the area unearthing the dwellings of the 5000 BC. The people of the time lived like Hobbits, under the ground to protect them from the severe weather conditions here. It was fascinating and so unexpected.

    On to the main town, Kirkwall. Here we wandered into the cathedral and it was so fascinating. The stained glass, the ornate carved woodwork, the carved wood fittings, many people buried here. Amazingly there are ...

    Woke up early, actually I hadn't slept soundly , too excited to sleep!! So being a considerate sister I left Henry snoring away until it was 5.30am!! Quite late enough for an End to Enders last day I thought! Our alarm goes off at 6 anyway so what's a measly half an hour between brother and sister, so.. like an excited child I might have bounced him up and down on his bed a bit..... Whoops.. (Well, that's what annoying little sisters do, right!) Moan Groan... Come on Henry it's ...
