The Tameside Archaeological Society was founded in 1997. As well as occasional talks by members or invited guests, the society also runs a couple of ongoing digs. They also undertake resistivity surveys for themselves, the local university, and other organisations, as well as fieldwalking on the local moors, investigating possible sites, and doing exploratory excavations.
Members of the society will receive basic training in archaeological methods while working on our current sites. This can include preparation of a site for possible excavation, research, survey work, digging, trowelling, drawing and maintaining a Site Diary.
