There’s still time to book a place on the online autumn conference from the Council for British Archaeology North West, on Saturday 20 November 2021. The CBA North West Autumn Conference and AGM 2021 will look at archaeological work around the region over the past 12 months.
2021 has been another difficult year for archaeology in the region, beginning with a lengthy third COVID lockdown which did not ease until April, and ending once more with COVID uncertainties. However, professional archaeological work through the planning process has continued throughout the pandemic, and local archaeological societies have been able to get back into the field this spring, summer, and autumn, undertaking a variety of field surveys, building surveys and of course excavations.
CBA North West has been running an annual archaeology roundup of the latest research in the region (Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Lancashire, and Merseyside) since the 1970s. This year the event is once more online where a series of short talks will look at some of the archaeology highlights from 2021. These include; the Piermaster’s Green community excavation in Liverpool; the continued excavation of the medieval ironworking site at Cinder Hill in Holcombe; community archaeology work within the Pendle Hill landscape; an update on the multi-period prehistoric, Roman, and medieval excavations at Poulton in Cheshire; the Rochdale Town Hall community excavations; and an initial look at the potential archaeology impact of the proposed HS2 railway line from Crewe to Manchester.
