The book is an investigation of the origins of the Neolithic farming village on Orkney Island…
• Reveals the striking similarities between Skara Brae and the traditions of pre-dynastic ancient Egypt as preserved by the Dogon people of Mali
• Explains how megalithic stone sites near Skara Brae conform to Dogon cosmology
• Examines the similarities between Skara Brae and Gobekli Tepe and how Skara Brae may have been a secondary center of learning for the ancient world.
