Excavation of a site in Scalloway which could hold the key to Shetland’s ancient capital will begin in just a few weeks.
Kristian Leith has said in his dedicated Facebook page Skailway that work should begin in the first week of May.
It follows recent discussions with Orkney-based archaeological body Orca.
On Friday a fundraising page aimed at paving the way for a dig in Upper Scalloway reached its target of over £19,000.
Mr Leith uncovered human remains when he began digging the foundations for a shed during last summer’s lockdown.
