About Us

Who we are

Wirral Archaeology has changed. The informal group that successfully laid the foundation of a thriving organisation has evolved into a more formal Community Interest Company. It is a not-for-profit, all-volunteer organisation, registered with Companies House and committed to the promotion and sharing of Wirral’s complex history.   Its membership is open to anyone who shares our values, our aims and our objectives. The company is run, on behalf of its members, by a board of directors who are elected annually (or longer by agreement).

We are Wirral’s Premier History and Archaeological Society; an enthusiastic team of amateur historians determined to unearth the hidden history of this forgotten peninsula.

Members of Wirral Archaeology CIC have a wide range of professional skills and experience.  The company works closely with professional archaeologists, scientists and other experts in associated areas of research. We are an inclusive organisation welcoming people of all ages and abilities, and from all cultures, creeds and backgrounds.

Mission Statement

“Our aim is to investigate, explore and unearth Wirral’s hidden history and to make it publicly available by means of newsletters, talks, leaflets, our website and all other avenues of communication”.
