York Young Archaeologists Celebrate 40th Birthday

Birthday cakes
On Saturday 13th October members of the York Branch of the Young Archaeologists' Club (YAC) celebrated the 40th birthday of the organisation with friends and family at the York Archaeological Trust’s annual History and Archaeology Fair. The branch leaders extend their thanks to everyone who came and joined in the celebration of the club’s achievements, spoilt for choice with 40 fairy cakes, a layer-cake, a chocolate cake and a Stonehenge cake!

YAC is aimed at young people from 8 up to 17 years of age with an interest in ARCHAEOLOGY and is run by a bunch of enthusiastic archaeologists, museum professionals and teachers. The York branch meet once a month for a two-hour session in which they explore the heritage of York and surrounding area. Members go 'behind the scenes' at museums and places of historic interest and learn about the many specialisms that allow us to develop our understanding of the past. YAC take every opportunity to 'get stuck in' with practical tasks, ranging from object handling through to excavation! For further details of how to join as a young member or as a volunteer leader please visit the National YAC website: http://www.yac-uk.org//

You can also help keep the YAC branches going for another 40 years by supporting the Dig Deep for YAC Campaign (http://www.yac-uk.org/yaccampaign).
