Ness of Brodgar Visitor Team

The Ness of Brodgar welcomes many visitors on-site during July & August. Following the BBC series earlier this year, the archaeology team expect 2017 to be particularly busy. This year's dig will take place from Wednesday 5th July to Wednesday 23rd August.

An important part of the visitor experience is the team who meet and greet visitors, letting them know when tours are, where to go on-site, how to help support the dig and generally give visitors a warm welcome to the Ness.

Volunteers are wanted to be part of the team. No experience is necessary as full training will be given. However enthusiasm, confidence in working with the public and a love of Orkney's rich heritage is definitely an asset!

The working day is 10.00 to 17.00 but the team are very flexible and are happy to discuss what hours folk can do across a week and the 8 weeks of the dig.

This is a  great opportunity to be involved in one of Orkney’s great experiences and to be part of discovering the rich layers of history in Orkney.

If you would like to be involved please contact Anne Mitchell at the UHI Archaeology Institute on 569 340 (after 1pm) or or Rob at VAO on 872 897
