Northumberland suffered greatly from a massive Icelandic volcanic ash cloud in 1159bc (some things never change!) which had huge implications for our Iron Age culture. 1,000 years later, the Romans came and their legacy in the North is shown by the large range of forts, towns, roads and of course, Hadrian’s Wall. Steve Speak narrates this fascinating story in a 10 week course that will include visits to some of the local sites he has excavated.
