The Greater Manchester Archaeology Festival is offering 27 free books from the Greater Manchester Past Revealed series. These books are all available in a pdf form, for instant download. See the page here. (Scroll down to the bottom of the link page to see the titles. Please note that all the books can be downloaded by clicking on their titles, not just the ones labelled ‘download’.)

The books contain an excellent range of photographs and superb commentary on the excavations carried out. Numbers 19-27 have only just been made available recently as part of the online festival.

There are also talks from the festival that can be seen on youtube. These include a roundup of 2020 digs by Norman Redhead. New podcasts have also been produced, including one on Buckton Castle. To see the youtube videos and listen to the podcasts click here.
