ST AIDAN’S CRYPT, BAMBURGH: INTERPRETATION PLAN & DELIVERY

It was an exciting challenge to work with Bright to prepare an interpretation plan and deliver the interpretation for the historic crypt at St Aidan’s Church for Northumberland Coast AONB and partners, funded by the NLHF.

 

The remains of over 100 Anglo Saxons, originally buried beside Bamburgh Castle and uncovered during a storm, have been reinterred here. The remains were carefully studied, revealing that they were contemporaries of St Aidan and many had arrived in Bamburgh from as far afield as North Africa and Italy. Their extraordinary story is told using an engaging AV presentation in the historic crypt,  accessible displays in the church and the comprehensive Bamburgh Bones website.

 

I worked with the design team to establish the interpretive approach, and researched and wrote the interpretive content, including script-writing the AV show.
