From Ordinary to Extraordinary

Exploring the hidden stories and histories around us

We partnered with the Young Archaeologists’ Club to help fund an exciting opportunity for YACs from across the UK to design and deliver an archaeology themed project in their own community.

The projects focused on exploring untold stories and narratives linked to a site/place chosen by their group.

Our Young Producers and YAC Young Leaders helped select the 8 projects to receive the funding.

Below you will find overviews of all the projects, as well as the project film featuring all our groups.
