Education Resources


These pages contain a collection of resources for use by anyone involved in engaging young people and adults with the past. We have collected together the resources and activities we have used in our outreach work. This ranges from information about archaeological sites in the local area to online historic image banks and contact details of re-enactment groups. These pages are a working document and will continue to be updated as we discover new resources.


This resource is not intended to be a definitive guide to archaeology in the Greater Manchester area but an introduction in where to start when undertaking education and outreach work.


The links to the left of this page will:

Provide information about archaeological sites in the local area

Provide a list of resources

Provide suggestions for archaeological based activities suitable for adults and children

Support local societies, volunteer groups and organisations to engage people in archaeological discussion


Much of the content of these pages has been contributed by Dig Discover Enjoy volunteers, without whom this resource would not exist.
