I cannot find any glue showing, so I am not sure whether these have been glued back in or are just stress cracked.

It is was in several pieces and has been glued back with some restoration.
The latest study, part of a pan-European project called The Times of Their Lives to assess neolithic sites across the continent, attempts to draw together the previously cloudy chronology of which settlements existed when and what conclusions can be drawn from how they overlapped and were abandoned and then reoccupied.
The investigations found that the Orkneys were first colonised by early farmers around 3,600 BC and settlement peaked between 700 and 800 years later.
It also coincides with the construction of the Ring of Brodgar, the structure of what was originally some 60 standing stones.
It is one of the Orkney’s most important monuments and is of a similar age to Stonehenge.

Thanks to an unlikely combination of hi-tech carbon dating and neolithic remains of the Orkney Vole – a Continental rodent whose only presence in British Isles is on the Scottish islands – a new and dramatic understanding of pre-historic life on the archipelago some 5,000 years ago has emerged.
The result appears to be a picture of small communities living in close proximity to each other but with often distinct and varying traditions and habits ranging from their housing and burial structures to the types of pottery they used.
Archaeologists believe this was a symptom of increased competition between the islands’ various communities, a dynamic which may well have later led to Orcadians spreading their technology and nous throughout the British Isles.
This has allowed us to essentially work out who was breathing the same air on the islands at a particular time – how communities were living close by one another and yet differed.”She added: “People in the Neolithic made choices, just like us, about all sorts of things – where to live, how to bury their dead, how to farm, where and when to gather together – and those choices are just beginning to come into view through archaeology.
It’s an exciting time to be an archaeological scientist.”Testing of pre-historic remains of the vole found in Orkney’s burial sites suggest its closest genetic relatives are to be found in present-day Belgium and northern France, suggesting that the creature may have arrived in Scotland along with the people who brought the techniques to make Grooved Ware.
