Welcome to the web pages of the South Trafford Archaeological Group. We are a voluntary group established in 1979 to explore the archaeology, history and landscape of the Trafford, South Manchester, and surrounding areas.
The aims of the Group are:
- To promote the study of archaeology and history within the area of Trafford Borough and its immediate environs
- Provide a base and resource for research and a resource for field projects
- To aid and assist groups with similar interests
Our resources include archives of archaeological finds from a variety of excavation and recording projects, an extensive library, and our own newsletter (Browsings). Much of this material is housed in our Archaeology Centre behind the Old Hall pub at Altrincham golf club on Altrincham Road.
We have regular evening meetings, field trips and other events so keep an eye on our website for the latest news and updates.
