The venue for the Belfast branch is the newly built Archaeology and Palaeoecology building of Queen’s University Belfast, where resources and varied expertise can be drawn upon.

Belfast YAC

The branch has flourished since it was set up in June 2006 by archaeologists from Queen’s. With over 50 members on the books the club meets monthly and can normally accommodate up to 30 children per meeting. Children between the ages of 6 and 16 years regularly attend and many interested parents also choose to stay for the sessions. There is also the opportunity for those over the age of 16 years to become official club helpers.

The Belfast branch is currently run by Naomi Carver, Brian Sloan , Dr. Eileen Murphy and Dr. Emily Murray from the School of Geography, Archaeology and Palaeoecology. We enjoy a wide range of activities such as pottery making, flint knapping, learning about comets and myths, and the study of animal bones from real archaeological sites. We have also been out and about the country and had fieldtrips to the Giant’s Ring, Co. Antrim, Friar’s Bush Graveyard in Belfast, Navan Fort, Co. Armagh, and Carrickfergus and Dunluce Castles, Co. Antrim.
