Welcome to the new YAC website!


Welcome to the YAC Website: Home of the Young Archaeologists’ Club!

The Young Archaeologists’ Club (YAC) is the only UK-wide club for young people up to the age of 17 interested in archaeology. YAC’s vision is for all young people to have opportunities to be inspired and excited by archaeology, and to empower them to help shape its future.

There are two parts to the Young Archaeologists’ Club (YAC)

YAC UK membership which gets you:

  • A fantastic Young Archaeologist Magazine per quarter, packed full of archaeology news, activities and features, such as ‘Where in the World.’
  • A YAC Pass which enables FREE or discounted entrance to over 200 heritage sites nationwide!
  • As well as all this you also get a YAC Pin Badge which makes any school bag cool, a Membership Certificate AND a signed Well Come Letter from Tony Robinson our YAC President, who is also on Time Team!

So why not join YAC UK today?

The other aspect of YAC is:

  • The YAC Branches which are network of local branches where young people up to the age of 17 can get involved in hands-on archaeological activities on a regular basis. Check out the Map to find out where your nearest branch is today!

Dig Deep for YAC Campaign

The CBA is launching a Dig Deep for YAC campaign to support the work of its Young Archaeologists’ Club. If you are a YAC UK or YAC Branch member wanting to discover more about what this means for you, information can be found on the YAC Campaign page.

If you are interested in supporting the Dig Deep for YAC campaign we have highlighted a number of ways you can do this and we would very much appreciate your help.

Tony Robinson is the President of YAC and a presenter on Time Team, Tony says…

YAC encourages young people to look after and protect our archaeology. I am proud to be YAC’s President!
