Jarlshof, Shetland Mainland, discovered at the end of the 19th century, when a heavy storm ripped open a part of the coast, exposing buildings from the Iron Age. Some of the oldest houses found at Jarlshof are from 2500-1500 BC. Two of the Jarlshof houses, ca. 500 BC-79AD, have souterrains, underground tunnels with small rooms. Also inhabited by the Picts and later on by Vikings, and both left plenty of evidence of their presence.
