Did anyone see ‘Digging for Britain’ last night on BBC 4 TV? If you’re in the UK you can watch it here.

The programme featured the incredible site of the Ness of Brodgar on Orkney, which we’ll be visiting in July as part of Jamie George’s Sacred Scotland tour. The other day Linda Marson of Global Spiritual Studies interviewed me about the tour and about Orkney in particular.

Here’s the interview:

  1. Thank you so much for this wonderful information shared.

    I had not seen it,but I did watch it last evening,and what a wonderful programme indeed it was.

    I was amazed indeed,and rather excited when it was suggested,that perhaps those from StoneHenge,may have travelled to worship,live there or perhaps make a form of pilgramage
    or journey,which truly amazed me,I did think,perhaps it also may have been the other way round,also,who knows what journey was taken there and back again.

    I also was very interested to see,how toward the end of the programme,those searching for artifacts,from those whom vanished,or seemingly did so when the Romans,were at the height of what they did.How these folk were feared by the Romans,as they were of a form of warrior wild folks,whom,seemingly would not be beaten by the threat of the empire.

    And to think that this unseen,or rather elusive group would be feared by the Romans,as being troublesome to them,makes me think,and wonder,as to whom,they really were.I have my ideas of course,and that aside,it was such a fabulous programme indeed,the wells which were discovered also in other regions,in the north,and so on so forth,then the Viking boat,was a treat indeed and a joy to behold.

    Thank you so much indeed.

  2. Sadly I can’t see the program…I guess it will turn up sometime down here in Australia. But the archeological discoveries on the Ness of Brodgar do seem set to turn current theories on their head.

  3. Great interview! Yes, much going on there…and to see. Hope the tour goes well for you in July… (& here’s to Scotland!)
