The first element of the Young Archaeologists' Club is our UK-wide club. This is based around subscription to our magazine, Young Archaeologist, which is packed with news, features, competitions, letters and pictures from members, and hands-on activities to try at home. YAC UK members also receive our fabulous YAC Pass which contains special offers for our members including free entry or discounts at over 150 museums around the UK. Special discounts at the British Museum Company website and Cotswold Outdoor are also included in the YAC Pass. Members also receive advance information about National Archaeology Week. Each year YAC UK organises archaeological holidays for members (for which there is an extra charge); these are a great opportunity to meet other young people with similar interests and to try out loads of hands-on archaeological activities (see for details of this year's holidays). And there's a membership pack with a certificate, badge and membership card too.

There is also our network of local Branches, which are run by vetted adult volunteers around the UK. These offer hands-on activities and tend to meet once a month.
