My Books

ManchesterAtWork2018BI have written, frankly, more archaeology books than I can count off hand. Many of these are local or North West England-based topics, but there are wider studies as well. My latest is a volume entitled ‘Manchester at Work: People and Industries Through the Years’ (Amberley Publishing 2018). Amongst my personal favourites are ‘The Birth of Industrial Glasgow: The Archaeology of the M74’ (Society of Antiquaries of Scotland, 2016); ‘Industrial Archaeology: A Handbook’, co-written with Marilyn Palmer and the late Mark Sissons (Council for British Archaeology, 2012); and ‘Manchester: A Hidden History’ (History Press, 2008). I usually have at least one book project active (currently its four). You can find links to many of these studies on Researchgate and Academia websites, whilst others will be discussed on these pages.
