Donate to CBA



 The Council for British Archaeology is a small independent charity, which receives no regular funding and relies on your support. We have been instrumental in bringing about great changes to the face of archaeology, finding new and improved ways of engaging the public with Britain’s archaeological heritage.  

Our mission is to carry on this work and help more people connect with and learn from archaeology. 

The best way you can support us is by becoming a member, but there are other ways too, from a one-off or regular donation to raising funds for free by simply shopping or browsing the web. Find out more below.
