Boyne to Brodgar features in Ireland-Scotland Joint Bilateral Review

Boyne to Brodgar: Making Monuments, Creating Communities is an innovative project, focusing on the Neolithic monuments across Scotland, Ireland and Northern Ireland. These range from the iconic World Heritage Sites of Brú na Bóinne and the Heart of Neolithic Orkney to less well-known henges and timber circles. This international, interdisciplinary and cross- sectoral initiative is co-operative, socially inclusive and environmentally sustainable, featuring archaeologists, heritage professionals, educators and community groups, in the UK and Ireland and beyond.

The Ireland-Scotland Joint Bilateral Review: Report and Recommendations 2021-25 was launched on the 14th January 2021. The Boyne to Brodgar project features as a case study within the review.
