II.2.4) Description of the procurement

The Neolithic archaeology of Orkney is outstanding and includes some of the most important sites in North West Europe. In 1999 a number of sites and monuments on Mainland were awarded World Heritage Site status. This listing has raised the archaeological profile of Mainland Orkney and resulted in an increase in tourism. This contrasts with the picture emerging in the North Isles of Orkney, where communities have not seen such an obvious benefit from the UNESCO World Heritage listing.

There is a wealth of Neolithic archaeology in the North Isles and this includes numerous burial tombs - many that have not been excavated using contemporary techniques. Some of these tombs have little or no interpretation associated with them and are visited relatively infrequently.

An important part of this project is to provide an opportunity for isles residents to assist in archaeological research and learn about the Neolithic tombs on their island. Community engagement opportunities could include evening classes or workshops, training days and walks and talks.

The research undertaken will form the basis for interpretation material that may take a digital or physical form and that highlights tombs across the isles. The interpretation could take the form of a ‘Neolithic Landscapes of the Dead’ trail.
