About

Tyneside’s rich and diverse radical history is only fitfully commemorated in the urban fabric of Newcastle and Gateshead. Mapping Tyneside Radicalism is designed to create a space where academics, researchers and local communities can work together to build a permanent memorial to the region’s tradition of radicalism and activism. This interactive website has gathered an archive of historic activism, and it allows users to map this archive on to the modern Tyneside landscape. Every event comes with a short commentary and links to further readings, and wherever possible we have tried to provide dates and exact locations, though sometimes both are approximates. We believe that this resource will be of considerable use to students, schoolchildren, researchers and members of the public.
