Local history....ancient and comparatively modern

"Past Perfect is a New Opportunities Fund grant-aided project run jointly by Durham and Northumberland County Councils. It uses the latest in virtual reality interactive technology to bring the archaeology and history of the two counties alive. Browse around seven very different archaeological sites, experiencing how people lived in these places. Search the archive sections to find historical documents, archaeologists' records, photographs, objects and other archives, and learn how these elements helped create our vision of life in the past."
