Wessex Archaeology would like to congratulate the Young Archaeologists’ Club on their relaunched website http://www.yac-uk.org/. We have close links with the YAC with several of our staff involved with the club: Salisbury team members Gemma Ingason and Phoebe Olsen are a branch leader and assistant team leader at Southampton YAC, where Phoebe was formerly the Treasurer; Laura Joyner, Community and Education Officer, is branch assistant at the Salisbury YAC; Heritage Consultant Naomi Brennan is assistant branch leader with the South Wiltshire YAC; and Senior Heritage Consultant Alexandra Grassam based in Sheffield, is branch leader with the Pontefract group.
The YAC leaders all give their time voluntarily and help provide educational sessions on an archaeological theme for 8 to 16 year olds once a month. We wish the YAC and their groups well in all their new ventures.
Gemma, Phoebe, Laura, Naomi and Alexandra
