Based at the heart of the University campus and with strong links to the academic community, we are uniquely placed to deliver a client focused approached to deal with a variety of commercial, academic, and community based archaeological and heritage requirements.
We appreciate the impact of archaeological remains and built heritage on the construction industry and that fast and efficient management of this is essential to their success and completion. Through our bespoke client focused approach our experienced staff can help to minimise such risk and delay.
Our staff at Salford Archaeology have a long research history in studying the archaeology of industrialisation; that is the transmission from a rural, agrarian society to an urban, manufacturing, one. The Centre contains three of the leading scholars in the archaeological research of the subject in Britain, who have helped to develop a variety of archaeological models for studying the transition archaeologically, encapsulated in the Manchester Methodology and in the Historic Landscape Characterisation approach.
Centre for Applied Archaeology aims to be at the forefront of current archaeological practice and research.
We primarily carry out archaeological research within three broad areas:
- The historic built environment
- Community engagement
- Industrial archaeology
It is our intention that by developing this holistic approach of transferring knowledge of the past, the Centre for Applied Archaeology provides the means by which these three individual heritage sectors can interact and collaborate together.
