Our amazing volunteers
The Young Archaeologists' Club has an incredible network of local hands-on clubs right across the UK.
Every year, these clubs organise and deliver thousands of opportunities for young people aged 8–16 to get their hands dirty doing amazing archaeology.
Our clubs are run by more than 450 brilliant volunteers! Across our network of clubs, we estimate that our awesome volunteers together give 5,680 days of their time every year to ensure that the next generation of archaeologists and history enthusiasts are given the chance to explore their local heritage.
This is #volunteersweek so it is the perfect time to say a huge...
Thank you for your time, enthusiasm, inspiration, excitement, determination, expertise, excitement, support, commitment and fun.
Without you our YAC members would not be able to dig, discover, explore, survey, research, record, make, visit, uncover, conserve, protect and learn about the archaeology all around them.
Each and every one of you is an awesome ambassador for archaeology!
