Young Archaeologists Club dates 2015
YAC Dates for 2015
There's another fantastic year ahead for the YAC. The YAC is the place for young people who want to get into archaeology.Archaeology is the study of past people, starting from our earliest ancestors 2.5 million years ago to the remains of 20th century warfare. Being an archaeologist is a lot like being a detective, piecing together a jigsaw of clues to discover how the people of the past lived.
