It is difficult to imagine that the flat green field that is Yeavering today was once a place where hundreds of
people jostled to hear Paulinus, a priest from Rome, preach to them the teachings of a strange new religion.
This aerial photograph shows Yeavering bounded to the south (right) by a road, with a modern forestry plantation on
its sloping edge. The quarry, which once threatened to destroy the site, can be seen in the corner of the field
(bottom right). You can see other aerial photographs of Yeavering
