A new Bradford Kaims video made by Hirst Park School

Our friends at Hirst Park School have just put the finishing touches on an amazing video they’ve been making about the Bradford Kaims site. The organizer for this media project, Brian Cosgrove, has the following to report. You can watch the video below. We hope you enjoy! We had a blast filming with them!


“Week one of the summer break saw a unique twist on our media and video production work at Hirst Park. Almost seven years ago a student crew from our school filmed a series of investigative interviews at Bamburgh Castle.
We have reunited members of that very first crew, along with media students involved with our IHC engineering project the same year, on a new video project.

The original crew are now in their final years at high school and they jumped at the chance to work on a video project again. As in the original videos we are working with our friends at the Bamburgh Research Project but this time the film is about the recent discoveries at the Bradford Kaims wetland site a few miles from Bamburgh.

Filming took place over two days at the start of the summer break and was organised and supported by Mr Cosgrove, media developer with the Ashington Learning Partnership, along with Mrs Piddock and Mrs Larkin from Ashington High school.

Following our two days filming at the Kaims, the Director of Archaeology at the project, Paul Gething wrote:

“Thanks to your team for the hard work. They are inspirational.  They have a slick, professional attitude and easy efficiency that puts most of the other media we’ve had on site, to shame. I’ve worked with media for 15 years with teams from all over the world and not seen better.  My team were all very impressed”.
