Were the Stones of Stenness the world's first henge and stone circle?

Why has Orkney preserved so many Neolithic farmhouses and villages?

What was the purpose of the huge buildings on the Ness of Brodgar?

In this small book, painter Hector McDonnell introduces the history and the mystery of Orkney.
