Newcastle upon Tyne, commonly known as Newcastle, is a city in Tyne and Wear, North East England, situated on the north bank of the River Tyne. The city grew up in the area that was the location of the Roman settlement called Pons Aelius, and it owes its name to the castle built in 1080, by Robert (II), Duke of Normandy, "Curthose", William the Conqueror's eldest son.
