Royal township of the 6th c Anglo-Saxon kings of Northumbria.

Known only from the 6th Century writings of the Venerable Bede, Ad Gefrin, the palace of the Anglo-Saxon kings in Northumbria, was little more than a legend until archaeologist Brian Hope Taylor began work at the site of Yeavering in the 1950's. The site inerpretation traces the history of this important site, what we can learn from Hope Taylor's original excavations and how today's archaeologists are expanding our knowledge of this fascinating and unique piece of local history.
