Coquetdale Archaeological Society is ensuring that pupils at Thropton First School learn about the lives of their forefathers in Coquetdale.

With help from a Heritage Lottery Fund grant, the Society is working on the Border Roads project and Northumberland National Park community archaeologist Krissy Moore is also working with pupils.

Later in the year, the children will go to Barrowburn to see the progress of the dig there.
