Archaeologists find the club where Engels spent time in Manchester

It is known that Friedrich Engels spent time (during his early years in England), in the Albert's Club, founded in the 19th century by German immigrants. In this club, which he joined in 1842, Manchester workers met who ended up inspiring his work "The situation of the working class in England”.

Now the BBC announced that a team of archaeologists working in the area where the National Graphene Institute is being built, has found the remains of the famous Albert Club. “It was an unexpected and pleasant surprise to find these fascinating remains"Said Nobel Prize winner Kostya Novoselov.

The Albert Club was founded by the community of middle-class German workers who worked in the cotton trade in Manchester. Previously, this area was part of the private villa of the architect Jeptha Pacey.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
