HY 2318 1874 and HY 2340 1880 A watching brief was undertaken during the excavation of two small holes near Skara Brae on 6 October 2008. The first was for the relocation of a sign next to the access path near the village, while the second was for the placement of a new stone in the ‘Timeline’ at the end of the path nearest the visitor centre. Only turf, topsoil and underlying sand were disturbed and there were no finds or features of archaeological significance.
