The Young Archaeologists' Club (YAC) is the UK-wide club for young people up to the age of 17 interested in archaeology. The club is run by the Council for British Archaeology, an educational charity working for over 65 years to promote 'Archaeology for All'.

 

YAC's vision is for all young people to have opportunities to be inspired and excited by archaeology, and to empower them to help shape its future. YAC Branches are a network of local branches where young people aged 9 to 16 get involved in hands-on activities on a regular basis.
