Belief in the North East?
Belief in the North East is a new community archaeology project being delivered by the Department of Archaeology at Durham University and funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. We will work with local people of all ages to explore the rich archaeology of the belief, religion and ritual of North-East England. Ranging from prehistoric rock art to 19th century graveyards, we hope to shed new light on the complex religious beliefs of the past populations of Teesside, County Durham, Tyne and Wear and Northumberland.
We are please to have received £179,000 funding from the Heritage Fund are excited to be launching this innovative new community archaeology project.
