Tyne & Wear Archives

Tyne & Wear Archives is the largest archives service in the North East, with 12 miles of shelves holding millions of documents; it offers teachers a goldmine of primary source material covering 500 years of local and national history.

Archive material has been incorporated into Discovery Museum sessions, such as the popular Great Fire of Newcastle and Gateshead workshop. Groups are also offered sessions on how to use the archive effectively to develop local history enquiries and support Arts Award.
