Welcome to England‘s Manchester Region Industrial Archaeology Society (MRIAS)

The Society aims to advance education of the public in the subject of industrial archaeology.

We are interested in:
› Developing a greater understanding of the industrial archaeology of the Manchester region.
› Recording, interpreting and where possible preserving the physical remains of industrial artefacts and sites in their social, cultural and historical contexts.
› Promotion and research into the industrial archaeology of the Manchester region of England.

Our passions are the history of industry, technology and transport.
