The Orkney Archaeology Society exists to promote and support archaeology in Orkney and membership is open to all. The society runs fundraising campaigns to support many of the digs that take place in Orkney, including the Ness of Brodgar, and is a charity registered in Scotland (SC030611).
We support the work of the Society and if you take a holiday with us we will include a membership application form in your welcome pack at the hotel - we hope you'll join and help support their valuable work.
The Society is carrying on an honourable tradition of archaeology societies in Orkney - the first was the Orkney Antiquarian Society, formed in 1922. The Society published 15 volumes of their Proceedings up until 1939, containing much new research on a wide variety of subjects, from excavations to place-name studies. Unfortunately the Society didn't survive the war and the Proceedings are quite hard to come by outside of Orkney.
