Our special event on Tuesday and Wednesday 5th and 6th August
Did you come and meet Tony our Neolithic Man? He was here to show you and let you handle lots of artifacts like neolithic arrowheads, pickaxes, ropemaking, quernstones and wicks.
The event was a great success, and our grateful thanks go to Tony for coming here. Let's hope he can come again next year. If he can come, we'll let you know in advance as soon as we are informed.
We also thank Historic Scotland for making it all possible.
This was the 2014 exhibition

Westray's Living Heritage is an exciting new project which puts Westray Heritage Trust at the heart of island life. It will leave a lasting legacy for future generations of islanders and it will provide a snapshot of life in Westray during the early 21st century. We hope, in time, that it will grow to become a full-blown record of island residents and their day-to-day activities.

A third figurine was found at the Links of Noltland dig.
Left to right we have the Orkney Venus, then the second find the incomplete figurine, and then the latest discovery (some call it the Grobust Grandad), found at the Grobust site close by the sea.
This is the Grobust site where the figurine was found.
