In August, 2015 several members of Sacramento Archeological Society, Inc. joined members of the Council for British Archaeology for an archaeological tour of the Scottish Orkney.  Orkney has world famous Neolithic villages of Skara Brae and Ness of Brodgar which is currently being excavated, Maeshowe chambered tomb and amazing henge monuments of Brodgar and Stennes – all part of our World Heritage Site.  After the Orkney tour the travelers continued to visit archeological sites in Scotland, England and Ireland.

 

Program:

Jan Johansen, SAS Board Member will share Orkney photos and stories in the presentation “Mysteries of Ancient Orkney”.

Paul K. Davis, SAS Board Member will present “Archeological Sites in Great Britain”, tidbits from his visit to other archeological/anthropological sites in the Great Britain following the Orkney tour.

An informal discussion will follow including comments from additional Orkney tour participants: Jeremy Johansen, Tom Johansen, Ruth McElhinney, and Knuti VanHoven.
