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.
Are you part of an archaeological or historical society? For our 80th anniversary next year, we’d like to build a picture of community and grassroots archaeology in the UK. We’d love to know what activities you’re running, your thoughts on the sector, and what support you need. Take the survey and be in with a chance to win £100 for your society! The closing date for responses is 12 pm on Monday 11th December.
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.
