In 1989, Bryant and Salamon constructed the first Riemannian manifolds with holonomy group $\Spin(7)$. Since a crucial aspect in the study of manifolds with exceptional holonomy regards fibrations through calibrated submanifolds, it is natural to consider such objects on the Bryant-Salamon manifolds.
In this talk, I will describe the construction and the geometry of (possibly singular) Cayley fibrations on each Bryant-Salamon manifold. These will arise from a natural family of structure-preserving $\SU(2)$ actions. The fibres will provide new examples of Cayley submanifolds.
