The Bernica Project
The Anglo Saxon territory of Bernica was approximately equivalent to the modern English counties of Northumberland and Durham, and the Scottish counties of Berwickshire and East Lothian, stretching from the Forth to the Tees. In the early 7th century, it merged with its southern neighbour. With family from Northumberland (Ashington), this project is about my pride and love for an area in the UK that is all too often forgotten. The North East and Scottish Borders are rich in stunning landscape, history and heritage. It's a part of the world that is often forgotten by tourists and the people of the UK. An area that has something for all age groups, The Bernica Project is not about promotion but about awareness, and the belief that we should all be hugely proud of our history.
