The American Friends of the Ness of Brodgar Inc. - supporting the ongoing excavation at the Ness of Brodgar, Orkney BUY-THE-BOOK cent logi

Our Sponsors

The excavations at the Ness of Brodgar would not be possible without support of the  past and present landowners Arnie & Ola Tait, and Carol and the late John Hoey. The dig could not have even started without their help and encouragement, and we much appreciate everything they've all done for the Ness over the years. Here's Arnie & Ola being presented with a bottle of champagne by site director Nick Card as a small token of our appreciation.


We would also like to thank the small army of volunteers from all over the world who have given of their time & energy – we could not run the Ness without them.


A big thank you to YOU the public, whose generous on site donations during the dig season are much appreciated.


Many companies large & small, local, national & international have helped fund the excavation over the years and we would like to thank them all!
