The relics of Orkney possess some of the excellent remnants belonging to one of the aboriginal clans that existed for almost 1000 years and vanished approximately around 2000 BC. The prehistoric people of this land have built some of the amazing stone monuments that were of some importance of ritualistic or domestic aspects of their lives. These monuments are the best known relics of Neolithic design and construction. One gets to understand the aesthetic skills of the people who belonged to this civilization. One such testimonial example is the “Maeshowe - a chambered tomb” which portrays the exceptional engineering skills as this tomb is designed to allow the sun rays to hit the passage way and to light up the chamber during winters!
