Unearth some of Northumberland's hidden secrets this half term with our Victorian archaeologists.

Mini archaeologists will join two Victorian time travellers who helped John Clayton discover Roman remains and ancient artefacts along Hadrian's Wall. Find out about the tools used to excavate discoveries, take part in activities to guess what the fragments from the past were and visit our museum to see Roman objects and original archaeology on display.

There will also be tours throughout the day. Our Victorian characters will take you around the area where many artefacts were unearthed by John Clayton and his team of archaeologists.
