We are a membership group for everyone interested in Yorkshire's archaeology.
We are a charitable organisation (registered charity no. 519581) run entirely by volunteers for the benefit of those interested in the welfare and better understanding of Yorkshire's historic environment. We aim to encourage and promote greater public knowledge and involvement, and where possible to advance and assist relevant research.
We cover the historic Ridings of Yorkshire, from the Tees to the Humber, and from the Pennine moors to the east coast. The archaeology of this region is as diverse as its landscape, from the often-elusive remains of the Palaeolithic and Mesolithic in the Dales, to the military remains of the mid-twentieth century on the North Sea coast.
We are an independent charity funded by our members' and affiliates' subscriptions. Our committee is elected at the annual general meeting in February each year and meets four times during the year.
Council for British Archaeology - Yorkshire Group
Whether you are a professional archaeologist, studying or skilling-up to work in the field, or just fascinated by archaeology and want to explore further, CBA Yorkshire offers a range of ways to get involved.
Connect with the Yorkshire archaeology community, and uncover the latest stories, research, publications and resources. Keep informed and join in the debate through our events and forums.
CBA Yorkshire seek to support local campaigns. Encouraging active stewardship of the historic environment, with both buildings and archaeological services, is at the heart of our work.
Together we can bring our history to life, tell its stories and preserve that knowledge for future generations. But we are dependent upon our Members’ support to be able to continue to stand up for Yorkshire’s heritage.
