Salford’s Early Past Revealed

Sunday 11 September 2016 to Sunday 11 June 2017

Many archaeological investigations have been carried out across Salford, but particularly in the central part of the city. Previously unknown prehistoric sites have been located, Roman roads rediscovered and some of the city’s finest timber buildings recorded, greatly increasing our understanding of the way Salford’s communities grew.

This exhibition takes you on a journey from the first Salfordians in the Iron Age right up to industrial Salford.
