We are part of a UK wide network of branches. Children can become members of YAC UK and receive a quarterly magazine about archaeology for young people. Click on this link to find out more: http://www.yac-uk.org/
Edinburgh YAC was re-launched with a new team in September 2011.
Our club is open to children from 8-16 years old.
We meet once a month on a Saturday morning for 2 hours.
We provide fun and educational Archaeology related activities for children. Sessions we have done in the past include: mesolithic midden dig simulation, bronze age burial re-enactment, making models of prehistoric sites, cave painting using real prehistoric paints, archaeological survey methods and much more.
Parents do not usually attend our sessions, but can if they wish.
