Coquetdale Community Archaeology exists to encourage and promote, for the benefit of the public, the study of and research into the archaeology of Upper Coquetdale. We encourage the identification, recognition and conservation of the archaeological heritage of the area and help people acquire, develop and share the skills and techniques necessary for active archaeological research.
Our activities include:
Organising talks and lecture series which are open to both members and the general public
Carrying out documentary research in libraries and archives
Projects such as field walking and cataloguing of finds
Surveying, and landscape analysis and recording
Archaeological excavation, with associated activities such as planning, drawing, photography and the full range of post-excavation analysis and publication
The Border Roads project, of which this website is part, was built with the help of grants from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Northumberland National Park. We are grateful to these two organisations for their help and support. In 2018, the project won a nationwide award from National Parks UK for the best Volunteer Project of the Year.
