A Neolithic building, a staggering 82ft long and 65ft wide in size, has been discovered in Orkney.

Dr Colin Richards, a leading expert on the period, said the building would have stood at the heart of Neolithic Orkney. “A structure of this nature would have been renowned right across the north of Scotland – and is unprecedented anywhere in Britain.”

It’s clear that those big buildings were designed to create a sense of awe in the punters. They were intended to drive people to their knees.
