During 2004 to 2005 English Heritage funded the archaeological assessment of the five small medieval towns of Tyne and Wear. The work involved the collation and analysis of documentary, cartographic and archaeological sources for evidence of the extent and character of the urban development of the towns from the historic core to the major areas of residential and industrial expansion in the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

The towns covered by this survey are:

  • Gateshead
  • North Shields
  • South Shields
  • Sunderland
  • Tynemouth
