Introduction

Arrowheads from project fieldwalking

The Till-Tweed Project was designed to enhance understanding of a large river valley through archaeological and palaeoenvironmental analysis. As the name suggests, the Till-Tweed Project is based around the reaches of the two rivers, the Till and the Tweed in north Northumberland, England. The project has been funded through the Aggregate Levy Sustainability Fund distributed by English Heritage. It is a collaboration between Archaeological Research Services Ltd and Newcastle University.

The Till-Tweed study builds on the geoarchaeological approach to archaeological research and management developed for the Milfield Basin, Northumberland, where nationally significant prehistoric monuments are located on sand and gravel deposits in close proximity to major quarries. The Till-Tweed project has extended this study to valley floors and flanking hillslopes in two study blocks that lie upstream and downstream, respectively, of the Milfield Basin.
