Geordie History

william jobling gibbetThe Past, The Present & The Future Of Geordieland

The history of the Tyneside, Durham and Northumbrian people can easily be traced back to the times of the Roman Emperor Hadrian who gave the order that a remarkable 73 miles long wall should be built in order to keep the ancient marauding tribes of Scots out of Great Britain.

This historic world famous fortification, now simply known as Hadrian’s Wall, stretches from the small Geordie town of Wallsend on the banks of the river Tyne, through the magnificent countryside of Northumberland to the Solway Firth in Cumbria which forms a natural border with Scotland.

In this segment of the Geordie website directory, we will highlight some of what we consider to be the best historical Geordie websites.
