Inside a house at Skara Brae
Stone furniture in one of the neolithic dwellings at Skara Brae. These things are old. Built over 5,000 years ago, they are older than the pyramids in Egypt - and way older than Stonehenge. They were revealed when a big storm blew the turf and sand off the site in 1850.
