Worcestershire Young Archaeologists' Club

The Iron Age Log Boat WYAC is the Worcestershire Young Archaeologists' Club.

We meet monthly, exploring all the different things that archaeologists do. The Club has been holding events and meetings since its relaunch by a voluntary group of archaeologists, parents and teachers in November 2003, with support from Worcester City Council and Worcestershire County Council. There are now around 70 members, aged 8-16, who all have the opportunity to learn about what it is like to be an archaeologist and to be involved in important work such as field walking and finds processing.


Building Weapons of War!Events range from looking at old documents in the Record Office to building and firing trebuchets and balistas (ancient weapons of mass destruction!). In the past we have surveyed earthworks, field walked, flint knapped, recorded buildings, drawn finds, made pottery to fire in a replica Roman kiln and loads of other things! We try to get on or run an excavation every year to make sure that the kids get to have a go at most things that real archaeologists do.

The club is run by archaeologists, teachers, and parents and is open to children aged between 8 and 16 years old.
