Papers and pictures in honour of Daphne Home Lorimer MBE

Sorting Isbister bones — Daphne Home Lorimer MBE at work in the Orkney Museum store in Orphir.

In March 2004, a selection of papers in honour of the retiring chairman of the Orkney Archaeological Trust were gathered and put online.

The site, which pays tribute to the late Daphne Home Lorimer MBE, features a selection of historical and archaeological papers and pictures, including details of a newly discovered Pictish figure, incised on a bone found in Burray.

Unfortunately, when the Orkney Archaeological Trust was wound up, the site hosting the papers went offline. As I had created the original site, I transferred them all to Orkneyjar.com to make sure they could still be accessed.

The mini-site can be accessed here.
