AOC Archaeology will analyse the graves to gain new insights into the life and death of the Viking community in Orkney during the 10th Century.

This will include a programme of bone analysis and radiocarbon dating.

HES will work with the Ancient Genome Project to uncover further information about the people in the graves, including genetic ancestry and sex.

Dr Kirsty Owen, deputy head of archaeology at HES, said: “Many of the Viking burial sites we know of in Orkney were excavated in the late 19th and early 20th Century, meaning that we have a rare opportunity to investigate this discovery with the cutting-edge methods and techniques available to us today.”
