It’s been quiet on the blog in recent months, mainly because we are reaching the end of the project and really busy tying up the loose ends. One job that has occupied a lot of our time is archiving. An archaeological excavation generates a lot of records and material culture. It also creates a lot of digital material like photographs, plans, reports on the finds and so forth. We’ll be archiving the digital records with the Archaeology Data Service where they will be available for anyone to access. The finds from the dig are going to Manchester Museum where they will continue to be used for public engagement and school workshops. We’re also finishing the excavation report and writing an evaluation report for the HLF, which provided the bulk of the funding for the project. Over the next month or two we’ll post about this activity, so keep an eye out for future alerts. We’ll also report on what some of the specialists say about the finds, and upload some of the final public outputs, starting with the Whitworth Park leaflet which I’ll post about shortly.
