Archaeology Matters

YAC is part of the Council for British Archaeology, an educational charity which relies on your support. Donate online now or find out more about how you can help make archaeology matter.

Join our digital adventure!

We’re at the start of a big adventure to create a whole new YAC website. Tell us what you’d like to find on our new website by doing our quick survey.

From October we’ll be starting a new email newsletter to keep you up to date with the work we’re doing, so that you can get involved and tell us what you think. To sign up just enter your details below. If you’re under 13 years old please check with your nearest grown-up first - they might prefer you to use their email address instead of your own.

We use a service called Mailchimp to send our newsletter, so when you enter your email address it’ll be transferred to our Mailchimp list. The list is secure so only the Young Archaeologists’ Club and Mailchimp can see it. We promise we will only use your email address to send you the YAC electronic newsletter, and never anything else. We will never give your email address to anyone else. You can take yourself off the list any time you like.
