Welcome to Gefrin
Welcome to an eclectic look at some of the archaeology and heritage in and around Northumberland. Find here an overview of some of the wealth of history and heritage between the Tyne and Tweed. My aim is simply to tempt you to visit; to give you a few insights into the lumps and bumps on the ground in the hope that you will join me in enjoying a historically rich and archaeologically fascinating part of the world.
Feel free to have a look around. You may well find out about one of the oldest inhabited dwellings in the UK, locate a prehistoric factory floor in use for thousands of years, look at the evidence for an ancient tsunami that changed the changed the outline of British Isles forever or simply find your way to the centre of some breathtaking hillfort settlements.
