Definitive guide to ancient Norn language discovered
The definitive text on the ancient Norn language and its link with modern Scots has been reprinted using the original pages and covers.
Norn was largely spoken by people in the north of Scotland until the mid 18th Century.
Uncollated and unbound sheets of the text, first printed over 80 years ago, were discovered in a Kirkwall warehouse.
The Orkney Norn explains the link between the ancient language of Norn and modern Scots as BBC Scotland's David Delday explains.
