Activities and events for our YAC have been postponed until October when we will review the situation.
The Young History and Archaeologists Club endeavours to educate and inspire young people from the area. Led by members of the Society and in partnership with Norfolk Museum Service and Historic England, the group meets monthly at the Time and Tide museum to explore, discover and have fun with history. The group were recently commended in the Historic England Angels award for their 'time effort and determination... and for the best contribution to a heritage project by young people'.

Autumn Programme of Virtual Talks
Assistant Professor Evan Wilson (50 minutes)
Vice-Admiral Horatio, Lord Nelson, is among the best-known and most-studied figures in naval history. This lecture will put Nelson in the context of the officer corps from which he emerged. By looking at the thousands of other officers who fought alongside Nelson, we can uncover a more complete picture of him and the navy in which he served.
Evan Wilson is Assistant Professor in the John B. Hattendorf Center for Maritime Historical Research at the U.S. Naval War College.
