On the borders of Scotland, in the Orkney Islands, archaeologists have been digging for nearly 13 years the remains of a mysterious set of very large buildings surrounded by a massive stone wall erected during the late Neolithic.

What does this place – nowadays known as the "Ness of Brodgar" – reveal about the beliefs of civilizations which populated the United Kingdom 3000 years BCE?
