Steve Speak leads this 10-week archaeology course exploring Northumberland’s fascinating prehistoric past from 4,000 BC (the beginning of societies with knowledge of agriculture) to the building of Hadrian’s Wall. We will learn about the various techniques of tool-making and house-building by studying actual artefacts: and examine the many ways people used to bury their dead, from defleshing, cremation and burial tombs. The opportunity will be given
to visit sites in the field in a class that will make the most of one of the best-preserved archaeological landscapes in the country.
Thursdays from 19th May, 2-4pm
