This blog showcases the work that our MCPHH colleagues and friends are involved in.
We want the blog to be something of interest and enjoyment, and encourage participation from those undertaking public history and/or heritage projects both in Manchester and its regions and beyond.
If you have something to write about, we would love to hear from you. Do get in touch with Haseeb Khan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The latest pieces are available for access below. Make sure to also look at our Blog Archive for hours worth of reading material. You can view that here.
