The Bamburgh Research Project (BRP) is an independent, non-profit archaeological project investigating Bamburgh Castle in Northumberland, one of the most important archaeological sites currently under excavation in northern England. We are also investigating a prehistoric site just a few miles from the castle, the Bradford Kaims. Since 1996 we’ve been working to uncover the history of this fascinating castle and its environs, from prehistory to the present day. We aim, through our work, to bring this past to life for everyone.
This blog is a place for us to share our news, our work and our passions with anyone and everyone who is interested in what we do. During the open season (11th of June to the 15th of July 2017), we’ll be blogging our archaeology as we dig it, so you can share in our finds, our frustrations and, of course, our fun – we hope you’ll share with us in turn!
Outside the summer season, we’ll be blogging our thoughts and ideas about the news and issues that are important to us in our work. It’s not all work, though: we’ll be reporting on some of the fun stuff we get up to through the course of the year. And of course, we’ll be sure to keep you up to date with any interesting out-of-season developments!
If you’re interested in getting involved with the BRP and its work, or just finding out more about what we do, come and visit us at www.bamburghresearchproject.co.uk. We welcome any comments you have to make about what we do or what we have to say.
