Neolithic tomb complex found on Orkney

It appears to contain a central passageway and multiple chambers excavated from rock.
“Potentially these skeletons could tell us so much about Neolithic people,” said Orkney Islands Council archaeologist Julie Gibson.
“Not only in relation to their deaths, but their lives.”
One end of the tomb was accidentally removed as it was discovered and as a result, the burial site has now been flooded.
