Interactive quicktime panorama of House 3. Skara Brae is an archaeological site with exceptionally well preserved remains that show the stone built furniture and internal structure of ten Neolithic houses and their narrow connecting passageways. Radio Carbon dates show that the village was occupied for around 600 years between 3200 and 2200 BC. There appear to be two main structural phases to the occupation. House 3 lies on what is now the north-eastern edge of the village. Its northern wall and much of its floor was lost to the sea before the modern sea defences were built. House 3 is one of the later houses at Skara Brae. The original floor area is therefore like to have been around 35 sq meters was so more than half of this house has been lost. The monument is now managed by Historic Scotland and is a key element of the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site.
