Young History and Archaeology Club

The YHAC was established in 2015 and meets monthly on Saturday afternoons at the Time and Tide Museum. Thanks to funding from Historic England the YHAC is free to join. The club is supervised by GYLHAS members, supported by historians from the Time and Tide Museum and is affiliated to the National Young Archaeologist Club. Check out the national YAC website here.

At our last meeting, the group explored the communication routes built by the Romans in our local area, in particular the roads and waterways leading to the camp at Caister and the fort at Burgh Castle.


We then looked finds from the museum collection which were found near to Caister camp and discussed who would have used these objects.


Finally, we tried working out some sums in Roman Numerals. Can you work out today’s date using the Roman system?

If you are, or if you know a budding historian or a would-be archaeologist between the ages of 8 and 16, who would like to join us please email Patricia on
