Scottish Mysteries.(Selkies)


In Scottish mythology, selkies can change from seal to human form by shedding their skin. At 6,000-year-old midden sites (refuse heaps) on Oronsay, archaeologists have found bones from human hands buried alongside those from seal flippers. We know relatively little of how the first people who hunted, fished and gathered plants in Mesolithic Scotland saw the world; it’s tempting to see a prehistoric precursor to this story existing thousands of years ago.
