Maelmin Heritage Trail

  • Description

    Maelmin was the name of a royal township that existed near the modern day village of Milfield in Anglo-Saxon times. Today it is the site of a series of reconstructions of local archaeological structures. These enable visitors to experience the scale of the originals which have been lost to time. Once there were many henges in the area surrounding Milfield - dating from around 2,000BC. The Dark-Age house was found a Tarmac's Cheviot Quarry which is located next to Maelmin. The reconstructions are faithful interpretations based upon archaeological evidence....
