Geo-events for 2019

Mine Walk

To get you going for 2019 here is the list of events which have been put in the Northumbrian Earth Diary so far.  Just follow the link to the PDF . You can also find the geodiversty walks published in the new Northumberland Coast AONB Visitor Guide which is well worth a look at. Do put the Northumbrian Earth events for 2019 into your diary!  

This is the event schedule for 2019 including  a somewhat smaller  number of walks in the AONB geodiversity series, as the Hadrian's Wall Project will be taking up much of my time. There are many more events to come as the Hadrian's Wall Community Archaeology project develops, which I will update as soon as they are available:  Northumbrian_Earth_Events_Schedule_2019.pdf

This is the article published with the walk schedule in the Visitor Guide: AONB_Visitor_Guide_Copy_2019.pdf

  • In Praise of Pentagonal

    In Praise of Pentagonal

    A sharp eyed walk along the beach at Cocklawburn or on Lindisfarne and with a bit of luck you may find a small disc, shaped like a tiny petrified polo mint.

  • Where has Hadrian’s Wall Gone?

    Where has Hadrian’s Wall Gone?

    Before I answer that question, here is a little bit of background information from a manuscript fragment recently discovered in an obscure roman outpost at Ecclesia Novum-Oppidum near to the Fluvium Collegium (surprisingly close to where I live!) and published in the journal Falsus Nuntium. 

  • Northumberland Coast Rocks!

    Northumberland Coast Rocks!

    This project, which was completed during 2015 organised by the Howick Heritage Group and supported with HLF funding, delivered a book, some educational work with a local first and middle school and a series of walks and talks. In this section of geo-diversity resources you can have a look at the presentation given for the walks and talks as well as much of the material which was used in the educational work including lesson plans, activities and exercises.  There is also a handy guide to fossils to be found on the beach at Seahouses (and elsewhere on the coast).
