Sun worshippers and their mounds in Yell.

Title - Sun worshippers and their mounds in Yell.
Contributors - Brucie Henderson
Reporters - Calum Iain Maclean

Summary - Sun worshippers and their mounds on Yell.

The only place Brucie Henderson associates with sun worshippers on Yell is in Easter Houlland, where there are three mounds. The sun worshippers built their homes where they would be able to see the sun rise on the longest day of the year. When the sun rises at midsummer it is visible from these mounds.
