Archaeology at National Museums Liverpool

The archaeology of Merseyside is extremely rich and diverse. The landscape has been modified by humans for over 10,000 years and displays evidence from the Prehistoric periods to the more recent industrial and built heritage.

There are several strands to National Museums Liverpool's archaeological work. We undertake  community archaeology, curate the regional archaeology collection and host the North West's finds liaison officer for the Portable Antiquities Scheme.  Follow the links below to find out more about the work we do and the projects that we have been involved in.
