My Adult Education Courses

Restored mid-20th century salt wagon from the Lion Salt Works, Cheshire

I teach extramural courses for a variety of organisations, and have done for more than 30 years. My specialist teaching subjects include Roman archaeology, late medieval and buildings archaeology, and industrial archaeology, with an emphasis on (but not exclusively) North West England and Britain.

COVID-19 is forcing all of us to change the way we do things. Therefore, I am teaching the following courses online from January 2021:

Archaeology: The Industrial Archaeology of Greater Manchester Ref: C3845350 – Five Sessions, starts 12/01/2021, 7pm

Industrial Archaeology Seminar: Tameside’s Park Bridge Ironworks Ref: C3845466: 23/02/2021, One Session, 7pm to 9pm
