The Bamburgh Research Project is based at Bamburgh Castle, 50 miles north of Newcastle on the north east coast. It is a project dedicated to using the most modern field techniques, implemented by experienced field archaeologists, to provide training for students and volunteers alike. There are a number of sites being excavated including an early medieval burial ground, deep strat multi period within the castle, and a medieval port. There is also extensive field walking and test pitting in the Burgh itself.
A major aspect of the project is our media department. We have members of staff dedicated to creating a comprehensive digital video archive of the Bamburgh excavations. The media department also train appropriate students in all aspects of the media, in relation to archaeology.
