Landscape Masterclass with Stewart Ainsworth – The Wider Landscape

Join Stewart Ainsworth and friends exploring the wider landscape context of one of his favourite scheduled sites in England.

A look at the wider landscape around the local area, taking in archaeological sites that were discovered as part of the Farmer-Miner Research Project in 2009-2012

Epiacum Roman Fort sits within the South Tyne Valley which has been gently farmed for millennia. Close to Alston town,  at the meeting of five valleys, Epiacum has watched over the main transport routes across the North Pennine hills  for millennia.

Weekends are £225. Contact for more details and booking form. Local accommodation can be booked independently!
