Young Archaeologist is changing

Over the next year we are going to be making some changes to YAC, including building a brilliant, brand-new website, which we want your help to design. The website will be packed with all the incredible stuff you can currently get in Young Archaeologist. All this will be available completely free of charge to everyone.

Tell us what you’d like to find on our new website by doing our quick survey.

The new website for young archaeologists will be regularly updated with content for young people of all ages. It will replace the existing printed Young Archaeologist magazine, and as it will be freely available we will no longer need to charge anyone to join YAC - so far more young people will be able to get involved. If you’re a YAC UK member now; don’t worry – you won’t lose out as you’ll be able to access even more amazing content, updated on a regular basis, anytime you want it!
