Southampton YAC

Contact:Alex Walker
Email:

Southampton YAC is open to everyone aged 8–16 years. YAC clubs get involved in all sorts of activities, including visiting and investigating archaeological sites and historic places, trying out traditional crafts, taking part in excavations, and lots more.

Southampton YAC is based in the Archaeology Department at the University of Southampton but gets out and about exploring the local area. We meet 10 times a year, usually on the first Saturday of the month. A team of volunteers from a variety of archaeological backgrounds run the club: if you want to know more about how we recruit YAC volunteers and make sure children at YAC clubs are well looked after, check out our FAQs.

Membership costs £5.00 per family per year, and we take £1.00 for each session attended. If you’d like to get involved with Southampton YAC, get in touch with the team using the details above.
