    Revitalising Redesdale is a £2.8m, Heritage Lottery-funded Landscape Partnership Scheme, which aims to celebrate, conserve and enhance Redesdale’s rich cultural heritage, landscape and wildlife. Redesdale contains a rich diversity of historic remains, from Neolithic farming communities and Roman military occupation through to the Anglo-Scottish Border Wars, Border Reivers and 19th/20th Century reservoir construction. Despite this, Redesdale’s historic landscape is poorly recorded and understood. As a field archaeology volunteer, you will help us to better understand and tell the landscape story of Redesdale by assisting with archaeological investigations, including ground surveys, metal detecting and excavations, whilst gaining valuable skills and experience.

    Revitalising Redesdale is a £2.8m, Heritage Lottery-funded Landscape Partnership Scheme, which aims to celebrate, conserve and enhance Redesdale’s rich cultural heritage, landscape and wildlife. What happened when Harry ‘Hotspur’ Percy and James Douglas met in battle on a moonlit evening in August 1388? Why were they at Otterburn and where did the battle take place? Are there any traces left today of this bloody conflict? These are just a few of the questions we will be seeking to answer over the next three years. As a volunteer on the Conflict in a Landscape: Battle of Otterburn project, you will undertake exciting and rewarding research, directly contributing to our understanding of this unique and enigmatic battle, whilst developing valuable skills.
