Young Archaeologists’ Club

On 21st February 2015 Fulham Palace is launching West London’s first Young Archaeologists’ Club!

Young Archaeologists’ Clubs (YACs) exist up and down the country providing 8 to 16 year olds with a chance to discover the past through investigating artefacts and exploring the world around them. Fulham Palace has teamed up with the Council for British Archaeology (CBA), an educational charity, to open West London’s first YAC to provide an opportunity for children to have fun finding out about their local history and archaeology, meeting real archaeologists and craftspeople, developing new skills and making new friends in the process.

The club meets monthly on Saturday mornings from 10.30am to 12.15pm. Children will learn all the basics of archaeology from experienced archaeologists working in beautiful surroundings and discover the links that connect the site and themselves back to antiquity. Each month there will be a different theme covering everything from Roman crafts and dendrochronology, otherwise known as tree-ring dating, to historic poo and digging up skeletons. There are also opportunities for the older children interested in archaeology as a career to join the group as peer mentors, helping the younger children and supporting the workshop leader.
