Greater Manchester's Past Revealed

 

In 2010 The Greater Manchester Archeology Unit (now the Greater Manchester Archaeological Advisory Service) started a new initiative to share the results of archaeological work undertaken in Greater Manchester. A series of volumes made available to the general public in the form of booklets called the ‘Greater Manchester Past Revealed’ series. The booklets describe the work undertaken by commerical archaeology units as a result of developer funded archaeology and the work of community archaeology societies.

 

The series of booklets are a fantastic record that chart the recent progress of archaeological understanding and discoveries in the Greater Manchester region over the past few years.

 

This page details where you can gain a copy of the free booklets, most available as a free pdf.
