Presented by Westray Heritage Trust and Westray and Papa Westray Tourist Association: Stories in Stones: The stone tools of Prehistoric Orkney Mark Edmonds and Hugo Anderson-Whymark. Prof. Edmonds, University of York, is a member of the Research Committee for the Orkney World Heritage Area.   His interests encompass prehistory, landscape and memory and on the social dimensions of technology. He is also interested in exploring new connections between archaeology and the visual and performing arts. He says that, despite his best efforts, he still remains hopelessly fascinated by prehistoric stone tools and the potential that they offer for our understanding of past lives.   He will talk about the use of stone, stone tool manufacture and stone resources- and he would very much like the opportunity to look at stone objects and collections that people have collected here over the years.
