Jarlshof Kite

Last year a young man was flying a kite over Jarlshof. This famous historical site is one of the most important tourist attractions on Shetland. On display is evidence of dwellings dating back as far as Neolithical times. Bronze-age, Iron-age, late Iron-age (brouch), Picts (wheelhouses), Viking times (longhouses) and the Laird’s house from around 1600 AD build by Patrick Steward.
The young man flying his kite was Kieran Baxter and with his Topofly PhD project generated this amazing virtual 3D recreation of Jarlshof’s development over time.  5000 Years of habitation, with the sea covering and uncovering the dwellings over time, a site worth while visiting for sure!
