The Young Archaeologists’ Club is for young people aged between eight and sixteen. There are currently over 65 YAC Branches across Britain which hold regular meetings. Within Yorkshire there are clubs in such varied locations as the North York Moors, Sheffield, York and many more, reflecting how every part of our county can inspire young minds! Branch activities vary, but typically members can expect to learn about the many different aspects of practical archaeology including excavation, fieldwalking, surveying, conservation, etc. as well as learning more about the periods in Britain from the Palaeolithic to the Second World War – and archaeology from around the world such as the Egyptians, Romans and Greeks.
