Newcastle - Treasures of the North East

Northumbria University’s Hub programme will celebrate two treasures of the North East and their major landmarks in 2022; the return of the Lindisfarne Gospels, the most spectacular surviving Anglo-Saxon manuscript, and 1900 years since construction began on Hadrian’s Wall, the preeminent monument of Roman Britain. This series of festival events and activities will explore how we can use the Gospels and the Wall as tools for asking fundamental questions about humanity, and for thinking about what breakthroughs look and feel like today.
