History - Broo Project:

The lost Township of Broo For the last few years teams of archaeologists and scientists of various disciplines have been investigating the causes and the impacts of the massive sand movements that created the Quendale Links.  One historically known result of the sand blowing inland was the destruction of the properous township of broo (or “Brew”, or “Brow”). For further information on the Broo Project please see the following website for current information on the Project: http://www.bates.edu/history/faculty/gerald-bigelow/shetland-islands-climate-and-settlement-project/ Further research will be conducted in 2018, when we hope to follow the progress being made.
