Pots, Pipes and Sugar: Archaeological Excavation at Manchester Dock & Chester Basin, Liverpool

In 2007 archaeologists from the Museum of Liverpool excavated the sites of Manchester Dock and Chester Basin which were constructed in the late 18th century. In addition to the remains of the docks, large collections of early 19th century pottery, sugar mould and waste from tobacco pipe manufacture were found buried on the site. This talk will look at how these finds have changed our understanding of trade and industry during the Industrial Revolution in Liverpool.
