A couple of years ago some folk started a branch of Young Archaeologists’ Club (YAC) in Dunfermline (follow this link to find out more: http://yac-fife.org).
They came to realise that there were plenty of youth groups and schools that would enjoy and benefit from getting involved in archaeology too. YAC leaders have ended up delivering a mix of archaeological activities to young people across Fife.
They have run mini-digs in village halls and schools and invited groups to join in with archaeological projects. They’ve organised archaeological activities in museums and at events in places such as Stirling Castle and the Crannog Centre.
