Multiple burials at Orkney Neolithic site

BBC News - Multiple burials at Orkney Neolithic site:

Orkney contains some of the best preserved Neolithic remains in Europe. Just a few hundred metres from the dig at Banks on Ronaldsay lies the larger Tombs of the Eagles complex where remains of more than 300 people were found.

But the recent find is the first undisturbed burial of a Neolithic community to be discovered in Scotland in three decades.
I love the internet. Quick hop over to Google Maps (I like using Earth view, but there's no street view to pop into in the area), with Wikipedia, and I've got a pretty good idea exactly where this is going on ...
