80:A Secrets of the Ness of Brodgar: a Stone-Age Complex in the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage
 
Presenter(s): Nick Card, University of the Highlands and Islands
 

Secrets of the Ness of Brodgar

Off the northernmost tip of Scotland lies the Orkney Islands where it is said that if you scratch its surface Orkney bleeds archaeology! This is nowhere truer than in the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site that is renowned for some of the most iconic prehistoric monuments of Atlantic Europe: the great stone circles of the Ring of Brodgar and the Stones of Stenness; Maeshowe the finest chambered tomb in northern Europe; and the exceptionally well preserved 5,000-year-old village of Skara Brae. Recent research and excavation in this area is radicalizing our views of this period and providing a sharp contrast to the Stonehenge centric view of the Neolithic. In particular, the stunning discovery of a Neolithic complex at the Ness of Brodgar that was enclosed within a large walled precinct is changing our perceptions. The magnificence of the Ness structures with their refinement, scale, and symmetry decorated with color and artwork, bears comparison with the great temples of Malta.  These excavations are revealing a 5,000 year old complex, socially stratified, and dynamic society. The Ness excavations were recognized by the American Institute of Archaeology as one of the great discoveries in 2009; named the 2011 Current Archeology Research Project of the Year; winner of the international Andante Travel Archaeology Award in 2012; and featured in cover article in National Geographic in 2014. The excavations are directed by Nick Card who has lived and worked on Orkney off the north tip of Scotland for more than 25 years. He is Senior Projects Manager of the Orkney Research Centre for Archaeology, University of Highlands and Islands Archaeology Institute that he helped to establish. He is also a Member of Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site Research Committee; an Honorary Research Fellow of the University of the Highlands and Islands; Chair of the Ness of Brodgar Trust and Vice-president of the American Friends of the Ness of Brodgar.

OND:10 - APRIL APPRECIATIVE OBSERVATIONS

What is it?

Appreciative observing is about visiting each other’s classes to glean teaching techniques and learn from the wealth of experience we have at SRJC. It aims to disconnect classroom observation from evaluation.

Instuctors can get up to 6 hours of flex credit for any time spent observing a class, student appointment, online class, or discussing an observation with a colleague.  Meeting to discuss an observation is completely optional, but many people have found it interesting and worthwhile to debrief and discuss the class.

Simply select the campus location in the LOCATIONS box for a complete schedule of instructors and classes.  Use the instructor contact list to contact the instructor directly for the class you are interested in attending, to comfirm they have space for that particular class.  Once you have completed the observation, confirm your flex credit by selecting “Menu of Activities,” and “OND10: Appreciative Observations” for the amount of time you spent observing and discussing an observation.
