Kirkwall Grammar School S1 rapid counter mapping of the Ring of Brodgar

Check out these fantastic new maps of the Ring of Brodgar, Orkney World Heritage Site, made by Kirkwall Grammar School S1 students (all 125 of them) on 12th May 2015 on their Big Day Out. These are the results from 12 rapid counter mapping workshops with 4 GPS, run by Dan Lee (Lifelong learning & Outreach Archaeologist, UHI Archaeology Institute). The challenge was to find new sites and places (present & past) within and around the Neolithic stone circle.

My favorite new sites are: Hankie (Imaginative Recent Site Prize), Wild Ross (Natural History Prize) and Middle (Imaginative Spatial Prize)*

Thanks to KGS S1 pupils and teachers for a fun day, and HS Rangers Elaine and Sandra.

*all prizes are imaginative and do not actually exist.
