The Northumbrians have been overlooked by British and global history, but they’ve made astonishing contributions to both. Dan Jackson sets out to recover this lost history, exploring the deep roots of Northumbrian culture. 

From the Venerable Bede and the prince-bishops of Durham to Viz and Geordie Shore, this vital new history reveals a part of England with an uncertain future, but whose people remain as remarkable as ever.

Dan Jackson is a founding member of the Northumbria WW1 Commemoration Project. He has written for the New Statesman and appeared on the BBC’s Making History and Who Do You Think You Are?

Chaired by John Tomaney, University College London
