The Neolithic fingerprints of two young male potters have been identified on a 5,000-year-old fragment of clay discovered in Orkney.
In April this year The Press and Journal announced that archaeologists excavating at the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site discovered a “5,000 years old” finger print on the surface of a clay vessel. Someone at The Ness of Brodgar, a vast Neolithic cathedral-style complex, had pressed their finger into the wet clay surface and left an imprint according to The University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) Archaeology Institute, who led the excavation.
At the time the Smithsonian said the discovery of the Neolithic fingerprint “illuminated an unparalleled glimpse” into life at the remarkable site during the period. But now, Professor Kent Fowler, director of the University of Manitoba’s Ceramic Technology Laboratory in Winnipeg, Canada, has used a digital model of the clay, created by The Ness of Brodgar ceramic specialist Jan Blatchford, to reveal a further two ancient fingerprints belonging to two young men.
