Key Note: Professor Richard Bradley

This two-day conference will bring together a range of professionals from archaeological units, curators, museum educators, students, academics and community centred groups to explore the interdisciplinary nature of the connections within Northern Prehistory.

Tullie House will host the conference with our partners at Durham University and use this opportunity to discuss how public-facing heritage sites can interact with and utilise archaeological and academic expertise. With the inclusion of Prehistory to the National Curriculum in 2014 both school children and the wider public are becoming interested in their prehistoric heritage, making this an important time to inspire new research and engagement that will move Northern and Cumbrian prehistory into the 21st Century.
