Events and Items of Interest, August 18

Our friend Jim Wood sends this link to George Gunn’s Facebook post on the Proper Dry Stone Walling public group. George posted photos of ancient dry stone work at Broch Gurness in the Orkney Islands of Scotland, only 38 miles from the Northstone Stonefest! Thanks to Jim for bringing the post to our attention and to George for allowing us to share it.
