Autumn Showcase: Celebrating Community Archaeology in Yorkshire

posted 2 Jun 2017, 06:12 by CBA Yorkshire   [ updated 4 Jul 2017, 09:03 ]
CBA Yorkshire’s Autumn Showcase is a new event which aims to celebrate the amazing range of work being done by Community Archaeology groups in the county. The day will consist of presentations, poster displays and exhibitions by archaeological groups with a series of workshops to help develop skills.

It will take place on 
Saturday 4th November 2017 at The National Centre for Early Music in York

The event is designed to encourage groups undertaking archaeological and historical research to come together, to share their discoveries and to learn about what colleagues are doing in other parts of the county. CBA Yorkshire wants to do more to encourage the work of Community Archaeology groups and so we will also be encouraging feedback on what you want us to do to improve our support. The event is being held in the historic church of St Margaret’s in the
heart of York. The church was restored and converted into the National Centre for Early Music in 2000, winning major conservation awards.

If your Community Archaeology group would like to be part of the Autumn Showcase by giving a 20 minute talk on work that you are doing and/or by putting on a poster display or a table-top exhibition then please register your interest by e-mailing a c.100 word summary of your project to:

or by post to: 
Trevor Pearson, Secretary, CBA Yorkshire, 3 Grosvenor House,
Grosvenor Terrace, YORK YO30 7BF.

We want to get all the arrangements in place by the end of June so please don’t delay your response!
