In AD 640, Princess Aebbe established a monastery in the Scottish borders. She was the sister of King Oswald, ruler of the great Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Northumbria, and an influential figure.
But unlike the famous monastery her brother founded on Lindisfarne, hers has never been definitively located.
Armed with new information, we're on a mission to find it. We think the original structure is somewhere near a much later monastery called Coldingham Priory.
We're due to start excavating in June, to see if we can find further archaeological evidence of this historic site.
But we can't dig the entire site. In fact, we only have enough time to dig three trenches. The problem is that there's so much interesting stuff on the map that it's difficult to decide... and we think YOU can help us!
This is probably the first time archaeologists have EVER done this, but we're throwing the decision over to you. Does anything catch your eye? Which three locations do you think will produce the most interesting results? In short, where do you think we should dig?
This really is archaeology in your hands!
We're giving you two maps, and a brief description of where we can dig. It's then up to you to decide. We'll use your choices to guide where we put our trenches, and what we focus our excavation on. You've got three choices - use them wisely!
