The Northumberland EUS project involved three stages of work: database, assessment and strategy. The database stage involved gathering information from a variety of sources and adding it to the Historic Environment Record; sources included: archaeological excavations and other discoveries, information about historic buildings, historic maps, historic documents, and published literature.

The assessment stage involved writing a summary report on the history, archaeology and historic topography of the town in question; the report is illustrated with maps, and contains details of the sources on which the report is based.

The strategy stage involved developing local authority policies for protecting and managing the archaeological and historic interest of each town and the creation of a GIS dataset identifying areas of high and medium archaeological sensitivity. The reports were updated in 2010 to reflect the introduction of Planning Policy Statement 5: Planning for the Historic Environment.
