Archaeologists have released an image showing where human remains were found at an Iron Age site in Orkney.

A lower jaw bone was found centrally placed in a large whalebone vertebra within the ruins of a broch at The Cairns in South Ronaldsay on Tuesday.

Brochs, also known as Atlantic roundhouses, were fortified homes built in the Scottish islands and Highlands.

The BBC News Scotland website reported the discovery of the human remains on Wednesday.
