We are for everyone who is interested in Yorkshire's archaeology.

We are a charitable organisation (registered charity no. 519581) run entirely by volunteers for the benefit of those interested in the welfare and better understanding of Yorkshire's historic environment. We aim to encourage and promote greater public knowledge and involvement, and where possible to advance and assist relevant research. We cover the historic Ridings of Yorkshire, from the Tees to the Humber, from the Pennine, Moors and the North Sea coast. Yorkshire's archaeology is as diverse as its landscape, from the often-elusive remains of the Palaeolithic and Mesolithic in the Dales, to the military remains of the twentieth century on our beaches. We are an independent charity funded by our members' and affiliates' subscriptions. Our committee is elected at the annual general meeting in February each year and meets four times during the year.
