The Young Archaeologists’ Club is the only UK-wide Club for young people interested in archaeology.
YAC’s vision is for all young people to have opportunities to be inspired and excited by archaeology.
YAC started as Young Rescue in 1972, so we are more than 40 years old. Your parents may have been members of YAC when they were younger!
YAC has around 70 local hands-on clubs across the UK where you can get involved with archaeology. You can find your nearest club here on the YAC website in our Join a club section.
YAC launched this new-look website in 2015, which was also the year when we were presented with an amazing Europe-wide award called an EU Prize for Cultural Heritage / Europa Nostra Award.
