Shetland Community Archaeology - Team Members
Brendon Wilkins, Volunteer from Ireland
Ever since holding my first WHS I instinctually knew that destiny would need me to work on a breathtaking beach front rescuing archaeology as the surf hits the shore. With the bikini packed, and the industrial strength insect repellent liberally applied, I headed to the north of the north where I met friends old and new, and worked on the most dramatic site I've ever seen. Today we focused the total station on a clump of rocks 50 metres from the site and watched a sea otter devour a fish, then I went back to excavating an Iron Age hearth with a stonking piece of pottery wedged beneath it. Fabulous. The site, the staff and especially the volunteers were all great. Wish you were here.
