The Northern Antiquarian (TNA) is an online database of prehistoric and ancient sites throughout the UK.
The site was founded in July 2008. It exists to ensure that people all over the world, from enthusiasts to professionals, can easily access information about the UK’s prehistoric heritage. We maintain an extensive database of ancient archaeology, including standing stones, burial tombs and holy wells. As well as recording these sites, we seek to explore their cultural and mythical significance, encouraging debate, workshops and walks throughout a broad community network.
In March 2013, The Northern Antiquarian was constituted as a Voluntary
Organisation. As well as continuing to expand and maintain its national database of sites, TNA seeks to increase access to them, and help to preserve them for future generations.
“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source
of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no
longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are
closed.” — Albert Einstein
