Archaeology, Education, Community
The Bamburgh Research Project (BRP) is an independent, non-profit archaeological project investigating Bamburgh Castle in Northumberland, one of the most important archaeological sites currently under excavation in northern England. We have also investigated a prehistoric site just a few miles from the castle, the Bradford Kaims. Since 1996 we have been working to uncover the history of this fascinating castle and its environs, from prehistory to the present day. We aim, through our work, to bring the past to life for everyone.
