Archaeology North West 2019 Conference

HoghtonTowerAug18 (5)Its that time of year again when we round up all the latest research and finds from across the North West. This year’s Archaeology North West conference, and our AGM, will have a Cheshire theme, with talks on aerial photography in the county, Murgatroyd’s brine Pump and a tour of the centre of historic Nantwich with its wonderful array of timber buildings. The Peter Lange Memorial Lecture will be given by Sarah Cattell, who will be talking about the recent community dig at Hoghton Tower in Lancashire. Liz Stewart of Liverpool Museums will discuss the survey and excavation of Liverpool’s last surviving courtyard housing.  The day will begin with our AGM (and we are always looking for committee volunteers).

The venue is Elim Church and Olive Grove Conference Centre in Nantwich (CW5 6LW) and online booking can be found here as well as on our events pages:
