Archaeologists say they have unearthed the remains of a so-called incense pot at the Ness of Brodgar in Orkney.
It is only the fifth one of its type discovered in the British Isles. Other examples have been found near Stonehenge and in Dorset.
Site director Nick Card told BBC Radio Orkney that the pieces might not look like much, but were in fact “very exciting”.
