A major project on the north Northumberland coast is launching its community archaeology project this weekend.

The Community Archaeology Project, being delivered by The Archaeological Practice Ltd on behalf of the Peregrini Lindisfarne Landscape Partnership, aims to provide volunteering and training opportunities to individuals and groups wanting to learn more about the fascinating archaeological history of the North Northumberland coast.

The event, on Sunday from 11am to 3pm at Belford Community Club, will include presentations about prehistoric, Roman and early medieval archaeology, medieval and post-medieval buildings and recent archaeological work conducted at Lindisfarne Castle. Upcoming fieldwork opportunities will also be explained.

The event is free to attend, but please register your interest at lindisfarne@archaeologicalpractice.co.uk, and provide you name, address and phone number.

Anyone wanting to find out more about the Peregrini Lindisfarne Landscape Partnership can email David Suggett at david.suggett@northumberland.gov.uk or call the Peregrini office on 01668 213086.
