This is one of the reasons we came to the Orkney islands. This was a settlement by the sea that over time became covered by sand. It was uncovered in 1850. The preserved neolithic homes which were connected by tunnels can be viewed from above. Homes look like they might have been with the artifacts and sleeping boxes still in place. There is a nice gift shop and café in the visitor center.
