Society of Antiquaries of Newcastle upon Tyne


Founded in 1813 the Society of Antiquaries of Newcastle upon Tyne is the oldest provincial antiquarian society in England. The Society promotes a deeper understanding of the history and archaeology of North-East England. Much of the Society's initial work focused on Hadrian's Wall, but  also includes prehistoric and medieval periods, and industrial archaeology. The Society has collected over thirty thousand books, many held in their Library at the Great North Museum along with their archaeological items. The Society's main manuscript collection is now looked after by Northumberland Archives, while the bagpipe collection is in the Chantry Bagpipe Museum at Morpeth.
