Letters to a Young Archaeologist

Engaging young people to participate in archaeology is one of the main objectives of the CBA.

With this in mind, we have asked archaeologists, academics, and enthusiasts to write a letter to the fictional figure of the 'young archaeologist'. Whether they choose to tell their story, give advice, focus on the positives or warn against the negatives, their 'Letter to a Young Archaeologist' must, just as our sector does itself, look towards the future while continuing to uncover the past. 

We hope this series will appeal to the ‘young archaeologist’ in all of us no matter our age or experience.
