Telling the public what we have found is vital part of the archaeologist’s work. There are many ways to do this from open days and community work to twitter and blogs. More traditional publication such as books, articles, heritage trails and information boards have a vital role to play in disseminating this information in a more permanent manner.
The Centre for Applied Archaeology has three publication series which are available to buy as printed copy or as downloadable pdfs from the University of Salford e-shop (http://shop.salford.ac.uk/).
These publication series are:
University of Salford Archaeological Monographs: this is the Centre’s main academic series. It is used to give an introduction to and/or an overview of a particular subject or site type. There are currently five titles in the series with several more planned.
University of Salford Applied Archaeology Series: this is our technical papers series,. It is used to publish in detailed the excavations from a particular archaeological site (funded by the developer) or to publish conference papers. There are currently two volumes in this series with several more planned.
Greater Manchester’s Past Revealed: this is our popular publication series. It is overseen by the Greater Manchester Archaeological Advisory Service and many of the volumes are funded through developer-led archaeology and produced in conjunction with the commercial archaeology units working within Greater Manchester. There are 19 volumes in this series with several more planned for 2018. Most of these booklets are available as free downloadable pdfs and we plan on setting up a dedicate blog page for these in the near future.
