Were the Stones of Stenness the world’s first henge and stone circle? Why has Orkney preserved so many Neolithic farmhouses and villages? What was the purpose of the huge buildings on the Ness of Brodgar? In this small book, painter Hector McDonnell introduces the history and the mystery of Orkney. Could the practice of making astronomical stone circles really have started on a small island off the north coast of Scotland, and then been exported to the mainland?

The Orkney Book is packed full illustrations and has 60 pages.
All of the Wooden Book collection are fabulous, collectible, and highly affordable.  They are all packed with information and are “brain enriching”
