Belief in the North East?
Belief in the North East is a new community archaeology project being developed by the Department of Archaeology at Durham University and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. We plan to 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 only in the early stage of developing the project and are building a proposal for full funding to take to the HLF. We're keen to hear the thoughts and ideas of the wider community - please don't hesitate to get in touch.
