PROJECTS

Local volunteers in both urban and rural areas in the 30 miles between Hexham/Corbridge and the North Sea will have an opportunity to uncover more about Hadrian’s Wall. Activities will include excavation, surveys, and indoor research. Over three years we will investigate six main areas, and other projects can be developed with the help of local people – let us know your ideas. Anyone can get involved – no previous experience is necessary.
