Find out about the archaeological dig being undertaken at Berwick Infirmary in preparation for the building of the New Hospital on the site. View the work undertaken, meet a Community Archaeologist and see the finds which have been made on site.
Since spring this year, Northern Archaeological Associates have been working on the behalf of Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust to investigate the archaeological remains within the grounds of Berwick Infirmary ahead of the development of the new hospital. The remains are predominantly medieval in origin, with a particular focus on the 12th to 13th century. This was an interesting point in the history of the Berwick, as it was already an important and thriving settlement yet to be enclosed by the Medieval and later Elizabethan defences. This is an opportunity for members of the public to come and view the ongoing archaeological works, ask questions of the archaeologists and view some of the artefacts recovered during the excavations.
