Old Scatness Broch and Iron Age Village is one of the largest archaeological excavations in Europe in recent years. Finds from this Iron Age time capsule have inspired the design and creation of a range of products.
The Scatness Bear, discovered carved into a paving slab in the largest wheelhouse on site, has been recreated in a number of items including sterling sillver jewellery pieces. Other carvings such as the boar, found on a hearth stone in the 'smithy' has also inspired product design. A range of academic and research books have been published relating to Scatness, and they are available in this collection.
