The Young Archaeologists’ Club (YAC) is the only UK-wide club where 8-16 year olds can participate in real archaeology and discover why it matters. If you want to become a professional archaeologist in the future or just feel like taking up an amazing new hobby, YAC is the right place for you!
Our YAC members (over 2000) take part in all sorts of fantastic, hands-on activities, such as excavation, working with artefacts, visiting historical sites and undertaking experimental archaeology. We explore all eras of human history, such as the Romans, Vikings, Ancient Egyptians and Victorians. If you have an artistic streak, we also run lots of craft-based activities focused on archaeological periods and technology.
Our branches are run by over 500 dedicated volunteers and the network is coordinated by the Council for British Archaeology (CBA). The CBA is an independent charity, who brings together members, supporters and partners to give archaeology a voice and safeguard it for future generations.
