Young Archaeologists’ Club

The club meet on the first Saturday of the every month at the Dorset County Museum, 10.30am-12.30pm and is open to children between the ages of 8 and 17 years. Sessions cost £2 to include a drink and a snack.

We have covered topics including the Romans in Dorset, Medieval Britain and the British Neolithic and we have plenty of visits to local sites aswell as hands on excavating.  Running the club from Dorset County Museum means members also get the opportunity to take part in museum based workshops in which the children can investigate ourcollections and learn a wide range of skills if you are interested in joining the club or would like to know more please contact me.

The branch is run by Emma Talbot, Education Officer for Dorset County Museum, along with two trained archaeologists.
