Groups and Societies

Get involved with your local CBA group or archaeological society to discover more about the archaeology of your local area, and meet like-minded archaeology enthusiasts.  

CBA Groups 

The Council for British Archaeology works with eleven local CBA groups in England and Wales, and in Scotland with our sister organisation, Archaeology Scotland.  

Groups carry out a range of activities at a local level: providing advice and information about archaeology in each area, promoting participation, offering guidance on best practice, and getting involved in safeguarding heritage in their area. They also run their own events programmes and hands-on training activities

All the groups welcome new members, in exchange for a nominal fee to support their activity. Many of them also run grant schemes to help assist projects in their area and aspiring archaeologists.




Northern Ireland 

The CBA also works in Northern Ireland alongside our partners in the Northern Ireland Archaeology Forum.
