Wordless Wednesday

Wordless Wednesday.
Mainland,Orkney Islands, Scotland. Mainland is the name given to the largest island.

Maeshowe is a Neolithic chambered cairn and passage grave situated on Mainland Orkney, Scotland. It was probably built around 2800 BC. In the archaeology of Scotland, it gives its name to the Maeshowe type of chambered cairn, which is limited to Orkney.

Ring of Brodgar.

Graffiti is obviously not a new phenomenon! 

The Ring of Brodgar is a Neolithic henge and stone circle about 6 miles north-east of Stromness on Mainland, the largest island in Orkney, Scotland. It is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the Heart of Neolithic Orkney.

I am joining Sandee at Comedy Plus for the blog hop.

  11. I'd love to visit Scotland someday, Jackie.
    You inspire me with all these cool places you have visited.

  12. What a terrific place! I would LOVE to go there and see it all up close and personal! Thanks for sharing Jackie. Yes I am feeling much better. Thanks for your well wishes!

  13. I spend a lot of time in beautiful Scotland as I have family there, but I've not yet made to Orkney. As you rightly say, graffti is not new, even the ancient Norman castle near me have it.

  14. I've wondered what the meaning of Orkney was not expecting it to be a place. So interesting, and the grafitti! How cool is that? Discoverers / pirates stopping by to say we've been here. So funny. Like when people go on vacation and put their names on the wall of a restaurant. Maybe that's what the stones really were... the posts / columns of a lodge / gathering place waaaaaaaaayy back when. :-)

  15. WOW!! What a fabulous lace to visit!
    Bet it was fun :)
