ancient village, atmospheric,
windswept life so long
(Scara Brae in the Bay of Skaill on mainland Orkney is the best preserved neolithic village in Northern Europe, It was revealed by a violent storm in 1850. Some 5000 years old, it was inhabited before the Egyptian pyramids were built.)
Beautiful and interesting. Best wishes, Ellen
I love the sense of history you stir and wake with these few words…
The depth of history is amazing to witness!
Love the 4th and 5th lines–powerful words!! 🙂 And Scara Brae–I like the sound of the words themselves; need to visit that place.
Kathy it is a remarkable place, once some way inland but now right on the coast and sadly at risk of further land erosion. Like you I love the sound of the name!
