Excavations in 2008 focussed on Trench 4, the possible pan house of the 1767 salt works. Orkney College Geophysics carried out magnetometry, resistivity and ground penetrating radar survey of parts of the site. We welcomed a great many visitors to the site – and especially enjoyed visits by local schools.
