Helen Skelton follows the River Wear to discover the clues to fifteen hundred years of Northern history. Helen discovers how ancient buildings, local tradition, ancient maps and even a river bed can help reveal our past – and explain just how our towns and cities have grown. Emma was interviewed by Helen as a specialist contributor on the subject of medieval pilgrim badges and the shrine of St Cuthbert in Durham Cathedral. A short clip from the episode can be found here.
