Tomb of the Eagles, Orkney, Scotland
Orkney farmer Ronald Simison in the Tomb of the Eagles holding one of the skulls he discovered during his excavation of the site. He discovered the tomb in 1958 and excated it some 20 years later, tired of waiting for the officials to get around to the job. Now he and his daughters have made a small business of the tomb, operating it as a hands-on museum. It is on Isbister Farm on South Ronaldsay. Eagle claws found with the skulls indicated the status of the people burried in the chambered cairn.
