FURTHER DETAILS


The Council for British Archaeology (CBA)

Founded in 1944, the CBA is a registered charity and a company limited by
guarantee. Through our Council, eleven English regional branches, CBA Wales,
our partner the Council for Scottish Archaeology and a small  permanent
staff, the CBA works to promote the study and safeguarding of Britain's
historic environment, to provide a forum for archaeological opinion, and to
improve public interest in, and knowledge of, Britain's past.


The Young Archaeologists' Club

The Young Archaeologists' Club was set up (as Young Rescue) in 1972 as a
club for 9-16 year olds who were interested in archaeology and wanted to
find out more about it. The Club was originally run to fill the gap in
schools and local archaeological societies, particularly by providing
opportunities for children to become involved in archaeology, especially in
non excavating field archaeology. This year the Club celebrates its 28th
birthday.

In August 1993, the Club was taken over by the Council for British
Archaeology and it now acts as the junior wing of the CBA and has over 3,000
individual members. It is run from the CBA's office in York, although the
Club currently has 55 regional branches around the UK, all run by
volunteers. Club branches provide an opportunity for young people to find
out more about their local archaeology, get involved in archaeological
projects and participate in archaeological activities.

The Club produces a quarterly magazine, Young Archaeologist, which contains
news from around the British Isles, regular reports from junior
correspondents, features on recent finds, book reviews, competitions, places
to visit and many things to make and do.

Regular events organised by the Club include annual YAC holidays (which this
year involved two six-day holidays to East Anglia, although previous venues
have included Cornwall, Snowdonia and Northumberland) and National
Archaeology Days (co-organised by the CBA & YAC and aimed at families, with
over 150 sites taking part in July 2000).

Each year the Club organises a prestigious award, the Young Archaeologist of
the Year Award, based on a competition, for young people interested in
archaeology. Each year the winners are judged in two age categories 9-12 &
13-16.

Other YAC membership services include the provision of T-shirts and
sweatshirts and other Club merchandise, and a scheme for discounted entry to
museums, heritage centres, etc.

Full details of all YAC activities are accessible on the Club's web site at
www.britarch.ac.uk/yac
