Coronavirus; changes to our activities

We have cancelled our planned programme of lectures in Newcastle University for the rest of 2020. I hope very much that we will be able to get back to some kind of normality in 2021, but much uncertainty still surrounds events so far ahead.

In the meantime, we have put together a short-term programme of lectures and other activities, taking place online. Please see our programme page for details. Inevitably technical challenges and last-minute changes will arise in such an improvised programme; please keep an eye on this website for changes.

We have postponed our AGM (at which members are presented with and asked to approve the annual report and accounts), probably to our January meeting. In the meantime, members can find the annual report and accounts for 2019 on this website.

 The Membership Administrator and the Trustees are working remotely. We have limited access to our office in the Geat North Museum, but it is still best to avoid postal communication with us if possible. Contact the membership administrator on admin@newcastle-antiquaries.org.uk. Any contributor to Archaeologia Aeliana who sent hard copy manuscripts or disks into the office, please resubmit electronically, or contact the Society as soon as possible.  For financial queries, please contact the Society’s Treasurer at treasurer@newcastle-antiquaries.org.uk.  Invoices need to be submitted electronically.

The Society has set aside limited funds to assist research or publication projects in its area of interest (archaeology and history of the historic counties of Northumberland and Durham) that have been developed while it is impossible to carry on normal work during the lockdown.
