This is a new event to celebrate the amazing range of work being done by Community Archaeology groups in the county. The day will consist of talks, displays and exhibitions by archaeological groups running alongside hour-long workshops in a separate classroom. 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.
