posted in: Uncategorised | 0

The Girs and Steens (grass and stones) exhibition coincided with some exciting finds at the Links of Noltland site in Westray, including the Westray Wife figurine. Put together by Westray Junior High School pupils Hannah MacDonald, Matthew Harcus, Cassia Dodman, Lena Pottinger, Naomi Stout, Morgan Geddes-Ward and Rowan Pierce – with guidance from John and Sarah Cable and Peter Needham, the exhibition provided an insight into life in Westray 5,000 years ago.

A book to accompany the exhibition – A Chek o’ Girs and Steens – is available from the Heritage Centre, priced £2 plus p&p.
