Representation of a human, carved from whalebone. This figurine was originally discovered at Skara Brae by William G. Watt in the 1850s or early 1860s. This artefact was found in a stone bed compartment in House 3, which had already been largely lost to the sea then, but was completely washed away in the 1920s.
