For junior diggers

2nd February 1996 at 00:00
The Young Archaeologists' Club (YAC), is the little-known junior branch of the Council for British Archaeology. It has branches throughout the UK and gives information on sites and archaeological methods through its quarterly magazine. There is also discounted entry to 25 sites, with more being negotiated. Members are aged between 9 and 16 years.

The magazine is intended for use as resource material and makes special reference to the national curriculum. The layout of Stonehenge, for example, can be used to teach mathematics. Archaeological landscapes show record river erosions and prehistoric boundary markers in the form of rock art and can be used in the teaching of geography.

This year a first for the club will be a junior archaeologists' holiday in Cornwall, a two-week course which is expected to be both stimulating and demanding.
