The Stories in Stone Exhibition has now finished

The Stories in Stone Exhibition has now finished.

Partnering with Newcastle University, Northumberland National Park has launched its newest temporary exhibition that explores the University’s research into the geological history of the Hadrian’s Wall corridor.

From way back in the pre-Roman times to the present day, the famous Wall’s unique geology, and its connection between natural and cultural landscapes, tells a story of the intimate relationship that heritage and the landscape shared; a story which we’re lucky enough to discover today, and one which needs protecting so future generations can experience it too.

Human interaction and processes have helped to shape the natural landscape over time, and through natural features such as rocks, minerals, landforms and soil, the Stories in Stone Exhibition will help visitors to visualise a society 4,000 years before the Romans.

5th July to 5th September

The exhibition has a number of geological pieces on display, with pop up events running throughout the summer at The Sill and Walltown Country Park, including: Northumberland Rocks Walk and Talks, and Young Archaeology Club sessions.

The Stories in Stone exhibition is free to access, and it is currently on display at The Sill (from 5 July 2021) until 5 September 2021.
