2019 Rousay Show  A very successful and fun weekend, spent baking bread (for the first time!), cakes and a traybake, and managing to win most points in baking overall  I also tried my hand at flower arranging for the first time and somehow got ‘best exhibit in floral art’  Definitely the best show in Orkney!

Labelled as the Egypt of the North due to the vast amount of archaeological sites on the island. Seemed more like the Wicker Man to me.

Rousay.
We didn't get lost.
Possibly something to do with there being the one main road around the island.

A selection of some of the artefacts I found while digging at the Knowe of Swandro.
First: a fragment of a soapstone vessel, seemingly reworked into a pendant. Imported from Shetland or Scandinavia. Most likely Viking in origin, though possibly older.
Second: piece of slag. We know there was a lot of metalworking going on on-site during the Iron Age/Pictish periods, but it also could be from later occupation. 
Third - muddy bit of pumice. Again, probably a Viking import. Would have been used for smoothing hides and the like.
