TV: Orkney's Stone Age Temple

There's a programme on BBC2 at 9pm tonight called A History of Ancient Britain Special: Orkney's Stone Age Temple.

In it, archaeologist Neil Oliver is given a change to examine a recently discovered Stone Age pagan temple in Orkney that is 5,000 years old. It contains undisturbed artefacts and should greatly increase our knowledge of Neolithic people and their religious beliefs and practises.

I am looking forward to this :) There was an open day at the dig when I was on holiday in Orkney in 2010 and we visited :)
