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 is represented nationwide by our eleven local groups in England and Wales, and by our sister organisation, Archaeology Scotland.  

Our groups carry out CBA’s activities at a local level: providing advice and information about archaeology in the 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 of our 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.
