CBA Yorkshire



CBA Yorkshire is a charitable organisation run by volunteers for the benefit of those interested in the welfare and better understanding of Yorkshire’s historic environment. It aims to encourage and promote greater public knowledge and involvement, and where possible advance and assist relevant research.

We cover the historic Ridings of Yorkshire, from the Tees to the Humber, and from the Pennine moors to the east coast. The archaeology of this region is as diverse as its landscape, from the remains of the Palaeolithic and Mesolithic in the Dales to the military remains of the mid-twentieth century on the North Sea coast.

CBA Yorkshire has a range of activities that help promote our aims. These include publishing an annual journal Forum Yorkshire and running symposia, conferences, and day-schools. As well as making grants to individuals and organisations, and providing advocacy, advice, and access to expertise. We sponsor and undertake research across the full spectrum of practitioners, public, private, voluntary, and charitable, disseminated through our social media presence and annual FORUM journal. We act as an umbrella resource and referral body across regional and national centres of expertise. In addition, we lobby decision-makers and influencers for the greater good of Yorkshire’s heritage and archaeological practitioners. 

You can help us develop our work in education and conservation and raise the profile of archaeology in the minds of decision-makers by becoming a member. You will also receive a number of benefits, including a copy of our annual journal and the opportunity to attend a variety of events.
