Event description

Description

Tutor John Griffiths

The names of our streets are a kind of 'history on the go', giving hints about the origins of streets, what was carried out on them, who built them on whose land, and what they say about social attitudes at the time of naming. Newcastle and neighbouring towns have a rich collection of names illustrating an equally rich history, from medieval times to the present day.
