Archaeological excavation of possible prehistoric features

12th-16th and 19th-23rd August 2019

In partnership with Operation Nightingale, we will be carrying out an archaeological excavation of possible prehistoric features in the Bellshiel area of the Otterburn Ranges. Operation Nightingale is a military initiative, which uses archaeology to aid recovery of wounded, injured and sick service personnel and veterans. The features we plan to investigate include a possible Bronze Age Ring Cairn, prehistoric clearance cairn or burial monument and a linear earthwork.

No previous experience necessary. For full details and to book contact Karen Collins, Heritage and Engagement Officer on 07741 194309, karen.collins@nnpa.org.uk

Please get in touch if you would like to be involved in Redesdale’s wildflower renaissance: Jennifer.Care@northwt.org.uk

Do you have eight-legged visitors in and around your home? Get a closer look at some of these helpful residents. Discover how to identify your common spiders, where to find them and learn about their biology and behaviour. This event may include a short spider hunt.

This event is suitable for ages 6+. All persons under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Join us for an update on our Battle of Otterburn project! Find out about our investigation into where and how the battle took place, and how you can help demystify this enigmatic event.

The first part of the meeting (about an hour) will be dealing with our review of primary sources for the battle and the plans for our review of the secondary literature.  All are welcome to join us for that but feel free to come along a bit later if you wish.

The second part of the meeting will focus on a more general update/discussion and our proposal to create a new battlefield society for Otterburn.

If you planning to attend the meeting please let Karen know by email to Karen.Collins@nnpa.org.uk

We are hosting a River Survey Training Event at West Woodburn on 11-12 July, 10am-4pm.

This is a new way for river enthusiasts to get involved in a habitat-scale assessment assessing physical structure of a river in relation to river fly, fish or aquatic plants, and will help with River Rede monitoring. The training is aimed at those who have some existing river survey experience such as Riverfly or Adopt a Stream, but other river enthusiasts are welcome.

Event is free, but advance booking is essential. email: info@revitalisingredesdale.org.uk
