The 3,000 B.C. community of Skara Brae is a complicated archaeological site, and like any village shows signs of reuse and rebuilding. This case study provides a basic guide to the site, with the two main phases of activity clearly demarcated - early and late. In this case study we will offer an overview of the important aspects and characteristics of the village, and we recommend that you follow this path before examining other themes in more detail. We will also examine chronology, spatial patterningof activity and a variety of interpretative themes. The site plan is available for reference at all times as a pop-up window.
