Understanding the Northumbrians: cultural archaeology and the pursuit of the longue durée in the history of North East England
From Bede to Brexit Dr Dan Jackson will explore the historical roots of the persistently distinctive culture of Northumbria and what the future might hold for this recognisably different part of England.
This event is free and the 1 hour talk will be followed by a drinks reception.

The Berg Rust Lecture
Those of you who knew Richard Berg Rust, our Development Director, whom we so sadly lost in 2017, will remember not only his huge contribution to the College but also his passionate love for the literature, culture and music of his native North of England, and especially of Northumberland and County Durham. In his memory the College has instituted an annual event – on Northern themes, which it hopes members and alumni will help to endow.
