Young Archaeologists Club

Love archaeology? If you’re aged 8 – 16 why not join your local branch of the Young Archaeologists’ Club. It’s run by Southampton Archaeology Unit and meets ten times a year to investigate the past.


1. Who can use this service?

The club is for eight to sixteen year olds who are interested in finding out more about the past. Many of our members are already members of the National Young Archaeologists' Club which is run by the Council for British Archaeology.

2. Charges: how much does it cost?

The Southampton Branch makes an annual charge of £5 per family which helps with administration costs. In addition we occasionally ask for small donations to cover resources. National charges can be found on the Council for British Archaeology web site.

You can pay by cheque (payable to Southampton City Council) or postal order. Payment can be posted, or delivered in person during working hours or at a meeting.

3. Ways To Apply

To join the National Young Archaeologists Club visit the Council for British Archaeology Web site, ‘phone and request a leaflet or pick one up at the Mission Hall (9am – 5 pm, Monday to Friday), the Archaeology Museum (Winkle Street) or Maritime Museum (Town Quay Road). For details of the Southampton Branch of Young Archaeologists' Club ‘phone or e-mail.

4. Ways To Book

By requesting a booking form. The application form is sent to all members before each meeting.
