People and Places is a Durham University project funded by a Leverhulme Trust Research Project Grant
People and Place: The making of the Kingdom of Northumbria 300-800 CE
This exciting new project at Durham University will use evidence from burial records to explore the health, wealth, ethnicity and lifestyle of the first Northumbrians. We will chart the emergence of one of the largest kingdoms in early medieval Britain in terms of the migration, mobility, social stratification, and political aggregation, that transformed the frontier region from AD 300-800.
Follow our progress, find out which events we will be attending, and access new publications.
