    Jarlshof, Scotland, Bronze Age settlement. When we go back, I'm going to make sure we visit this magical place! It's way up North of Scotland, in the Shetland Islands, but that's just a short 1 hour plane ride away from Aberdeen!

    Jarlshof, Scotland, Bronze Age settlement - near Sumburgh, Shetland Islands; the Viking settlement of the Jarlshof site was hidden until a storm in the late 1800s exposed some of the remains from late Iron Age buildings (before 800 AD); built in a circular fashion around a central hub with small rooms and storage areas leading off of it.
