This paper provides an overview of the ‘I Dig Moston’/‘Dig Manchester’ community archaeology project, which took place in Manchester, England, between 2003 and 2008. This project involved the collaboration of local residents, school children, community groups and professional archaeologists from the University of Manchester Archaeological Unit and the Manchester Museum. The paper reviews the power structures and relationships which characterised the project, with reference to Arnstein’s ‘ladder of citizen participation’. It reviews the aims and impacts of the work, reflecting on methods for the evaluation of community archaeology initiatives.
