Skara Brae

Skara Brae is often regarded as one of the best preserved European villages from the Stone Age. Before it was re discovered it was covered for hundreds of years by sand. In 1850 there was a great storm that finally exposed the village. Experts believe that it was the sand in the dwellings actually preserved the stone. The original inhabitants abandoned the village in 2500 BC when the weather conditions changed making it too cold.
