Mick Aston’s Young Archaeologists (Somerset) or “MAYA” is open to everyone aged 8–16 years. We get involved in all sorts of activities, including visiting and investigating archaeological sites and historic places, trying out traditional crafts, taking part in excavations, and lots more.

We usually meet at the Museum of Somerset in Taunton in the morning every second Saturday of each month.  For details Contact Us or see our Events page for our forthcoming activities

Important Notice: Starting in November we will be meeting on the first Saturday of each month instead of the second Saturday.

The club has been set up in memory of Professor Mick Aston from the TV programme “Time Team” who was very keen to start a new Young Archaeologists Club for Somerset.




If you are aged between 8 and 16 and would like to join us please contact Liz and Natasha

MAYA is a Branch of National Young Archaeologists Club governed by the Council for British Archaeology.
