Old Kielder medieval site (Kielder)
Slag has been found in several rectangular enclosures just north of Kielder Castle. Archaeologists think the enclosures were created between 1066 and 1543, during the medieval period. A local tradition says that they are all that remains of the castle of the `Cout of Kielder', a 14th century border chieftain. Although Old Kielder now lies inside the Kielder Forest, the earthworks there have not been destroyed by tree planting.
