Scope and Content Settlement at Skara Brae, Orkney The settlement at Skara Brae was discovered in 1850 when a storm destroyed part of the sand-dune which covered it. The village would originally have stood inland, but coastal erosion now means it is on the shore. It consists of houses and a workshop. This is a view of house 8. As with the other houses of this period, it consist of a central hearth and furniture made out of stone slabs, such as the bed seen here. Behind is the doorway to the passageways which link the houses together. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
