From the Bronze Age to the Roman Occupation

Thursdays from 23rd Jan, 2pm-4pm.

Steve Speak leads this 10 week course exploring the archaeology of the later Bronze Age in the North East up to the arrival of the Romans and the construction of Hadrian’s Wall. This has left us with a host of military structures particularly in the Tyne Valley. The Romans relied on the native
population to help their economy. The importance of the legacy of the earlier native communities
has often been overlooked but this course will attempt to reassess the impact of two highly different
societies. Field trip(s) included (weather permitting!).
