The story of ‘Find of the Day’

Last year the Bamburgh Research project teamed up on Twitter with other excavations across the country including Cosmeston Archaeology out of Cardiff University, the Silchester Dig run by Reading Uni and Binchester run by Durham Uni.

Over the course of the summer we were able to share our finds as they came out of the ground. This led to #findoftheday’ on twitter, in which we posted our favourite find of the day for everyone to see. Over time we were joined by other digs both in the UK and abroad.

The BRP are ready for a re-match this summer!

Below are a few of our favourite finds from last year.
