CBA Research into Archaeological Heritage and Young People
The Council for British Archaeology is carrying out research relating to best practice in providing opportunities for engagement by young people with archaeological heritage. This will help us to identify the level of support needed for using archaeology as a tool for engaging young people from different backgrounds. As a result we hope to create a useful evidence base for current provision and perceived needs of young people across the heritage sector and beyond. It will form the basis for the CBA to diversify, integrate and expand young person provision and engagement across all of the organisation’s work, including the UK-wide Young Archaeologists’ Club. The project’s final report should also present baseline data that will be of use to the wider sector.
Analysis is currently being carried out of the data collected. We expect the final report of this exploratory project to be available in Spring 2012.
To find out more about the CBA’s current support of young person engagement through the Young Archaeologists’ Club, including fundraising initiatives to help sustain our ongoing work in this area, please visit the YAC website.
