Welcome to Tynedale North of the Wall Archaeology Group

Community Archaeology in the North East

We are a community archaeology group focussing on exploring the history of the people who have, since prehistoric times, lived in the area of Tynedale now north of Hadrian’s Wall.


Because the area has for centuries been characterised by low intensity pastoral farming there are remains from earlier settlements, working environments and burial places still visible in the landscape. We are in the fortunate position of having a very rich archaeological environment that has as yet been little explored.
