The American Friends of the Ness of Brodgar, Inc. is  a registered United States tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charity. Our aims are to foster public awareness of and provide financial support for the on-going archaeological excavation and research being conducted at the internationally acclaimed 5,000 year old Neolithic temple complex, The Ness of Brodgar in the Orkney Islands of Scotland.


The Ness is a  massive Neolithic walled enclosure that contains numerous well preserved monumental stone buildings on an unparalleled scale –best known from its media coverage as Orkney’s 'Neolithic Cathedral’. It lies at the heart of one of the richest archaeological landscapes in the world, the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site (WHS) between the great stone circles of the Ring of Brodgar and the Stones of Stenness, and in close proximity to Maeshowe, the finest Neolithic tomb in Northern Europe.


We work in partnership with our sister charity, the Ness of Brodgar Trust   For more information please download our flyer
