This year, the series of six lectures by Dr Alison Sheridan will offer an in-depth assessment of the current state of our knowledge about the period c.4000-2500 BC, when new ways of living and of making sense of the world appeared and developed in Neolithic Scotland.
Still need convincing? Listen to the short interview on BBC Radio Orkney below, where Dr Sheridan discusses Neolithic innovation and ingenuity in Orkney 5,000 years ago (interview starts at 15:00 and ends at 19:23).
