The Mid Tees Research Project is a grassroots archaeological project working in the Tees Valley, researching particularly the Roman and early medieval archaeology of  the area.

The project focus is a multi-period site covering an area of approximately 1km2 in the area of the Tees crossing point of Cades Road (Margary 80a), the postulated roman road running from Brough on Humber to Newcastle.

The project concept is  aimed at re-awakening  the  long tradition of amateur archaeological endeavour from its long slumber of recent years. The project will offer opportunities for  suitably experienced amateur and professional archaeologists with interesting and innovative research ideas to conduct research independently within the site, but within the wider research aims of the project, also providing opportunities  for interested volunteers to acquire the necessary skills to eventually work independently themselves within the project.
