a trip to Orkney?
This Internet broadcast from Orkney's 5,000 year-old Neolithic chambered cairn remains unique. There are three cameras sending images from Maeshowe. The other partner and co-founder in this project is Victor Reijs, who has done much work on archaeoastronomy and whose visit to Orkney in 1996 was the inspiration for the project.
We would like to thank everyone who has supported this project previously. The broadcast has only been made possible with the cooperation and assistance of a number of people and organisations, including Historic Scotland, David Griffith, Highland Park Distillery as well as Tait Publishing Ltd. We would particularly like to thank Historic Scotland and staff for their help and encouragement.
