Members take part in hands-on activities such as excavations and workshops, visit historical sites, engage with guest speakers, and learn about all eras of human history.

YAC members also get the YAC pass, offering free or discounted entry to many historic sites across the UK, including sites managed by English Heritage, Historic Environment Scotland and Cadw.

The Young Archaeologists’ Club forms part of a larger organisation called the Council for British Archaeology, the UK’s leading archaeology charity, committed to making archaeology accessible to anyone interested in exploring the stories of people and the past.

Markus Milligan, Managing Editor for HeritageDaily said: “We are delighted to be able to do our part in helping the next generation of archaeologists find their calling through the Chiltern Young Archaeologists’ Club. The branch is run by a dedicated team of volunteers who tirelessly work to teach new skills and the fundamentals of archaeology”.

Janet Rothwell, Chiltern YAC Co-Leader, said: “Chiltern YAC will celebrate our 25th birthday next year. We are proud of our history of encouraging young people to engage with the past, and over the years several of our members have gone on to study archaeology at University. This generous Sponsorship from HeritageDaily will help us bring more expertise and craftspeople to share their knowledge and bring the past to life for our members, as well as increasing opportunities for a wider range of visits to exhibitions and heritage sites. Through this initiative Heritage Daily is helping encourage a greater interest in our heritage and to develop the next generation of archaeologists and historians.”
