Young Archaeologists' Club

young people looking at ancient carved stones

The Museum of Liverpool hosts the regional branch of the Young Archaeologists’ Club for the Mersey and Dee area.  We welcome members aged 8-16 to take part in a range of workshops, activities, and visits.

We meet on Saturday mornings about 5 times a year, and run full day summer holiday clubs too!  Our current programme features topics as varied as Vikings, Lego, and mummies!

There is a £30 annual fee for membership.  

For more information email or have a look at the Mersey and Dee page on the YAC website.

Treasure hunters

This short animation by Mersey and Dee Young Archaeologists' Club looks at buried Roman treasure - and the reasons why it remains hidden for centuries until treasure hunters discover it. They have some interesting theories!

The Cheshire hoards project 

The Young Archaeologists practice a Roman drill and take a closer look at Roman coins from the Knutsford hoard.
