Welcome to the CBA Yorkshire Video Archive


With the onset of Covid, on-line meetings such as Zoom have become the norm.  CBA Yorkshire were one of the first to host an on-line conference back in October 2020.  These presentations were recorded and are now available as videos.

Following closely on the success of  the conference, we introduced the Fireside Chats as a way of keeping members of CBA and the wider archaeology community in touch.


Our first collection is from the presentations at the 2020 Autumn Showcase

In 2021 CBA Yorkshire introduced the Community Grant Awards scheme to support affiliated groups and members of CBA Yorkshire.

The first four successful recipients talk about their projects in the following video:
