Every Sunday we are usually out digging in Tameside or undertaking geophysical surveys.
This years main evaluations are at Boar Flat , Edge lane Mottram and a roman road geophysical project between Stalybridge and Castleshaw.
We have assisted at events at Middleton, Castleshaw and individual members have also been involved in the Dig Manchester events across many of the council areas.
In 2014 TAS supported the DIG manchester project with a two week dig in Cheetham park.
We are also undertaking research on our a) mesolithic project Irontongue. This involves analysing the data, further environmental research, XRF assessment of chert samples from the site, but also other sites near Liverpool and raw material from North wales, Derbyshire and Yorkshire. This research is supported by Mr Ron Cowell and Dr Jeff Blackford. And b) a coke oven site at Park Bridge.
We also produce desk based assessments in preparation for future evaluations. Through out each year we are also producing reports of previous excavations or building surveys.
