Date/time: 7-Sep-2023 : 18:00 - WHY IS MAESHOWE SQUINT?

Dave Craig takes time out from the Festival’s schools programme to describe the mysterious and spectacular solar alignment of Maeshowe. Using the latest Stellarium software, he reappraises the 3000 BC alignment; with, he says, unexpected results.

Admission free, with a collection for Orkney Archaeology Society.

A workshop on Sunday (10th Sept) evening at 5 pm will explain the use of Stellarium for this study.
