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.
