Young archaeologists’ club (YAC): autumn 2020 and spring 2021 terms

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.
