CfAA logo Sept 11 BW smallWelcome to the blog pages of the Greater Manchester Archaeology Day and the Greater Manchester Archaeology Festival. In the 1980s and 1990s an annual archaeology day was held by the Greater Manchester Archaeological Unit. This was revived in 2011 as the Greater Manchester Archaeology Day (GMAD) and since then has become a key fixture in the archaeology calendar of the region and an important opportunity to meet and talk with academics, professionals and volunteers involved in uncovering the region’s rich past.
   In 2017 we expanded these engagement events with the first Greater Manchester Archaeology Festival (GMAF), in June, with the second following in June 2018. Both GMAD and GMAF are organized by the Centre for Applied Archaeology, in the School of Environment and Life Sciences at the University Salford, in conjunction with the Greater Manchester Archaeology Federation.
   The Greater Manchester Archaeology Day and the Greater Manchester Archaeology Festival aim to increase access, encourage the exploration, and celebrate the archaeology of Greater Manchester. Our blog pages provide a range of resources for those interested in getting involved in exploring Greater Manchester’s archaeology. We regularly add to our content so please click back to keep up to date.

    Have just been to the talk about Newton Hall at Newton Hall, Hyde. It was very good! Thank you Mike and Brian. I am really looking forward to doing the dig there in April. Jenny

    Where do I find information on future digs and can I sign up?
