Archaeology for All; Community Archaeology in the Early 21st Century: Participation, Practice, and Impact

Archaeology for All; Community Archaeology in the Early 21st Century: Participation, Practice, and Impact

Description

The practice and impact of community archaeology has developed rapidly in the early 21st century. There are now many different ways of doing, and bodies involved in, this activity, which encompasses archaeological work done by voluntary groups with the assistance of universities, museums, and archaeological trusts and companies. A range of vigorous debates have emerged, from the division between public and community archaeologists, to the role of HLF funding, and the nuts and bolts of project delivery by groups.

This volume captures this rapidly changing period for community archaeology with papers by some of the leading voluntary, museum, university and commercial-based archaeologists undertaking community archaeology in the UK today.  

Its inspiration was the landmark Archaeology for All conference in Manchester in 2006, an international, inclusive and multi-disciplinary event undertaken as part of the Dig Manchester community project. The resultant volume is more than just a collection of conference papers. It is a critical review of the methodological, theoretical and inclusive state of the community archaeology in the second decade of the 21st century.      

Edited by Michael Nevell and Norman Redhead.

Recapturing the Past of Salford Quays

Recapturing the Past of Salford Quays

Description

Douglas Farnie, one of Manchester’s greatest historians, observed in 1980 that during the 19th century Manchester had become an economic powerhouse. That powerhouse re-invented itself as an inland port 55 miles from the sea in 1894, ironically with most of its facilities based in Salford. Farnie concluded that ‘the creation of a thriving inland port required not only the excavation of a seaway but also the construction of a complex of facilities and their integration into an existing structure of transport, commerce and industry’.

This book captures the latest archaeology and historical work into this thriving inland port. It studies the precursors of the 1894 port, the Mersey and Irwell Navigation opened in 1736, the first Salford Quay opened in 1755 and the Manchester Bolton and Bury Canal opened 1797. The rest of the book looks at building the ‘big ditch’, ships and cargoes on the canal and the warehouses and functioning of the new Salford Docks. The story is brought up-to-date with a study of the transformation of the docks into Salford Quays.

Walking the Bridgewater Canal

Walking the Bridgewater Canal

Description

The Bridgewater Canal is one of the most iconic industrial monuments in the world. It’s opening in 1761 ushered in a boom in industrial canal-building in Britain and around the world.

The canal would not have been built, though, without the growing industrial market represented by nearby Manchester. The relationship of the canal to this city is thus of crucial importance in understanding Manchester’s place as the world’s first industrial city.

To walk along the canal from Worsley to Manchester is to follow in the footsteps of 250 years of sightseers. The current volume captures contemporary responses to the canal and the emergence of Manchester as an international city based around commerce, manufacture and transport. This is represented by the Bridgewater’s successors: the Ashton and Rochdale canals, and the world-famous Liverpool and Manchester Railway which are also explored in the work.

Warburton; Glimpses of Rural Life: The Archaeology and History of a Cheshire Village

Warburton; Glimpses of Rural Life: The Archaeology and History of a Cheshire Village

Description

Warburton lies in an ancient landscape, on the boarder of East Cheshire and Trafford, Greater Manchester, in North West England. Today it is better known for the busy toll-bridge that crosses the now dry river bed of the Mersey, and its two parish churches. Warburton hides a rich landscape history with origins in the late prehistoric and Roman periods.

This book brings together 19 years of archaeological and historical investigation in Warburton. There are separate chapters on the development of the landscape and village, the archaeology and history of the old church (one of only 29 medieval timber churches and chapels in England and Wales), the buildings of the area, and a study of the people of the parish from 1600 to 1900 using the manorial and probate documents. Together this information provides a detailed record of a rural community on the edge of the great industrial and social changes of the post-medieval period.
