Archaeological dig set to unearth Northumberland's past


The medieval secrets of Northumberland Park could be revealed in the next few weeks during an archaeological dig.
Up to seven trenches will be dug within the park, which lies between Tynemouth and North Shields.
The dig is part of work to rediscover the medieval hospital of St Leonard's as part of North Tyneside Council's restoration plans.
The council is applying for £2.2m from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to improve the park.
