The Northern Antiquarian (TNA) is an educational nonprofit organization that engages people of all backgrounds on the rich diversity of prehistoric and early Christian remains in the British Isles.
The studies cover the history from Mesolithic times (c.7000 BC) until the coming of the written word in the Dark Ages.
TNA was founded by author and historian Paul Bennett in 2008, and achieved nonprofit status in 2015. It was established to encourage the study of ancient history as a rewarding leisure pursuit and an academic discipline, for both individuals and groups.
TNA is a platform where amateurs and professionals can meet and work together, exploring enigmatic monuments such as stone circles, standing stones, prehistoric tombs and other ancient remains that were constructed long before records began, in an age when humans learned through oral tradition–much of which has died out.
