A rare small incense pot has been found at the 5,000-year-old complex at the Ness of Brodgar.

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”.
