Industrial archaeology

Industrial archaeology concerns itself with the physical remains of the Industrial Revolution. It is born out of the need to record and preserve the remains of industrialisation before they disappear. It is a part of landscape study and includes cultural aspects also. The term may have been coined in the 1950s in Manchester.
