Fireside chats update
The Fireside Chats programme has two exciting changes.
Unfortunately, Jim is unable to do the Richmond Castle excavation story on Tuesday 10th May. Instead, Trevor Pearson is going to tell the story of the Scarborough Archaeological and Historical Society who are celebrating their 75th year. We hope to include the Richmond talk in our autumn/winter programme.
The link which you might already have will be the same for Trevor’s talk - https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82447007763?pwd=b2ZuakU1U3htRzhGMFlOQ3hWbUt5QT09
To finish the current series of talks, we are lucky to have an offer of a talk on Tuesday 14th June from Hannah Russ who together with David Griffiths have provided the finds analysis for the current Great British Dig series on More 4:

Our community group members
Community archaeology and heritage groups from across Yorkshire have affiliated with CBA Yorkshire.
You can use the carousel below to explore those groups or go to http://www.cba-yorkshire.org.uk/local-groups/
We are for everyone who is 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, from the Pennine, Moors and the North Sea coast. Yorkshire's archaeology 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 twentieth century on our beaches. 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.
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.
