The Broch of Gurness is a rare example of a well preserved brooch village. Dating from 500 to 200BC the central round tower probably reached 10 meters. This was surrounded by thatched roofed houses. The settlement was surrounded by walls and two deep ditches. Gurness was probably the most important settlement on Orkney 2000 years ago. Mainland Orkney, Scotland.
