About us

CBA Yorkshire is 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. It aims 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 affliiates' subscriptions. Our committee is elected at the AGM and meets four times a year.
