Secrets uncovered during an archaeological dig are to be revealed.
A community archaeology project in North Tyneside was set up within Northumberland Park to investigate the remains of the medieval St Leonard's Hospital. Another dig in the area is due to take place this summer.
The Friends Of Northumberland Park will host a talk on the park's history at 7pm on February 4, in the Dolphin Pub on King Edward Road, Tynemouth.
Archaeologist Richard Carlton, who ran the archaeological project last year, will give an informal presentation about the dig and what was found, this year's dig and how volunteers can get involved.
Northumberland Park is currently being renovated as part of a project by North Tyneside Council to reinstate lost features and improve the park as a visitor destination.
The renovation is scheduled to be completed in autumn and is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Developers have uncovered signs of an ancient village on Teesside. A preliminary survey had suggested that nothing special would be uncovered. But, once the contractors started digging, they found artefacts dating back to the Bronze Age.
Excavations carried out as part of a new project to create a bird reserve on Teesside have revealed the remains of a previously unknown Roman settlement and artefacts from the Bronze and Iron Age.
The discoveries at Greatham Creek have been hailed as "remarkable" by the Environment Agency, after a previous archaeological survey indicated that they did not think there would be anything of special interest at the site.
"An archaeological survey is a key part of any major scheme we undertake to ensure that anything of historic interest is recorded.
"In this case, we had not expected to find anything unusual, so these discoveries are particularly remarkable."
