Welcome to the North West Regional Group of the Council for British Archaeology

We cover the counties of Cheshire, Lancashire, Greater Manchester and Merseyside. The archaeology of this region is as diverse as its landscape, from the ancient remains of prehistory to the iconic monuments of the Industrial Revolution.

Our aim is to help advance the enjoyment, study and care of the archaeology in our region.

Come over to our Events page for our

  • advocating and campaigning for heritage

  • providing grant funding for regional archaeological work
  • supporting the regional branches of the Young Archaeologists Club
