Spelthorne Young Archaeologists' Club

The Young Archaeologists' Club (YAC) is the only UK-wide club for young people up to the age of 17 interested in archaeology. The club is run by the Council for British Archaeology, an educational charity working for over 65 years to promote 'Archaeology for All'. YAC's vision is for all young people to have opportunities to be inspired and excited by archaeology, and to empower them to help shape its future.


YAC Branches are a network of local branches where young people aged 9 to 16 can get involved in hands-on activities on a regular basis. Spelthorne YAC (or SPARCS) has been running since 2003 with a variety of local project-based activities ranging from the Stone Age to the seventeenth century. We have recorded buildings in historic Staines, made Medieval style pottery, hosted a Bronze Age Who-dunnit, and turned the Museum into a giant board game called 'Keeping up with the Caesars'! Visits have included Butser Ancient Farm, the Thames foreshore in Central London, St Anne's Hill near Chertsey and Fishbourne Roman Palace.

We have again revamped the website for the 40th Anniversary of the Museum. Please take a look at the Queen's Award page, the Accessibility page, the photos of Staines page and the Lino page. There is also a map page showing how to get to us, people are always saying to us that they didn't know that we are located through the Library, on the map page we show photos of our building related to everywhere else around us.

We also have NEW pages showing the Exhibits that are supposed to be in the Thames Room, however they can be seen on here while we are closed, due to the Coronavirus.
