Scheduled Excursions 2014

 
The Society organises a programme of summer excursions to a variety of sites in Durham and Northumberland and beyond. In 2012 we visited the Rotunda Museum and Castle at Scarborough (with Society President Dr Andrew Millard and Erik Matthews), Excavations at Vindolanda Roman Fort and the Roman Army Museum, Hexham (with Dr Peter Ryder and Dr Eric Cambridge, a joint event with CBA North) and finally the Victoria Tunnel at Ouseburn, Newcastle (with Roger Fern). Our programme of excursions for summer 2014 will be publicised early in the year.

The Society organises a programme of summer excursions to a variety of sites in Durham and Northumberland and beyond. Since 2012 we have also organised an annual extended excursion further afield, with trips to Chester (2012) and Chepstow (2013) proving very popular. This year we plan to visit Leominster (see below):

Depending on numbers, excursions may be open to all, but priority is given to members. Please join us if you would enjoy visits to places of historical and archaeological importance, and the company of a friendly and enthusiastic group of like-minded people.

Vindolanda Roman Fort, Northumberland.
