Are you aged between 8 and 16? Want to get hands-on with the past? Then join our Young Archaeologists’ Club, YAC for short!
We’ve teamed up with the Council for British Archaeology (CBA), an educational charity, to open west London’s first YAC. The Club gives you a chance to get your hands dirty doing real archaeology — you’ll handle historical artefacts, meet archaeologists and try your hand at traditional crafts. All while gaining skills and making friends!
Each session has a different theme. Past activities involved:
- taking part in a real archaeological dig at Fulham Palace
- cleaning and cataloguing objects
- making medieval medicines
- investigating historical poo
The Club meets on Saturday mornings from 10.30 to 12.15. See below for upcoming sessions and book your place.
If you’re over 16 you can join the Club as a peer mentor, helping the activities and supporting the workshop leader.
