Lincolnshire Young Archaeologists Club

Bookings for upcoming sessions is open!


For our August session we will be holding a drop-in taster session for Young Archaeology Club for the whole family.

For the Autumn term (September-November) we will be learning about funerary archaeology through looking at Ancient Egypt, Bronze Age Europe, and Victorian England.


Archaeology Club taster session for the whole family:

Saturday 5th August 2023

10am-12pm at St Peter at Gowts Church Hall, Lincoln

This event will not be a drop off session.

Dates are as follows for our 2023 Autumn term:

Saturday 2nd September

Saturday 7th October

Saturday 4th November

10am-12pm at St Peter at Gowts Church Hall, Lincoln

The group is being run by Heritage Lincolnshire, with DBS checked volunteers.  A copy of our risk assessment and safeguarding policy can be seen on request.  This is usually a ‘drop off’ club, and as such strict adult to child ratios will be maintained.  Attendance to the club can only be confirmed by filling in the membership and covid agreement forms and paying the term fee on our website.  You will then receive a confirmation email.

We had a great time at our first Summer Term Archaeology Club last year on Saturday 30th April 2022.

We worked with LAG and Jane Young to explore ceramics. The members were introduced to and got to handle lots of different types of pottery, including several types of 'puzzle' or trick jugs. They then decorated their own plant pots, broke them (with appropriate PPE of course!) and practiced reconstruction by putting them back together again.
Looks like they had a great time!
