We were able to visit the Neolithic archaeological site of Scara Brae which is the oldest European settlement to have been found. It was amazing to visit such an old and important site that we had discussed in class. The people who currently live on Orkney were initially settled by the Norse and do not have the ties to Gaelic that the rest of the country does. It was interesting to be in a part of Scotland that has such a different history than the rest of the country.
