Druridge Bay reveals its archaeological secrets
Periods: Prehistory, Medieval
Talk or lecture

Druridge Bay on the beautiful Northumberland coast is rightly famous for its stunning natural beauty. But in recent years the ever shifting dunes have revealed some amazing archaeological discoveries. Then, at the beginning of this year, a community archaeology project in Cresswell linked to the village's 15th century pele tower discovered finds spanning the last 10,000 years!
Archaeologist and Cresswell resident Barry Mead will explain all in an illustrated talk, will also have some of the finds to handle and update you on the Heritage Lottery funded project to restore and open the pele tower.
