Continuing hybrid meetings and lectures
We are delighted that the Yorkshire Architectural and York Archaeological Society (YAYAS) is back to face-to-face lectures in the Friends Meeting House. However, because many people are unable to attend gatherings in person we are continuing to live-stream our lectures on Zoom. The links will be sent out via the YAYAS mailing list - to ensure we have your current contact details, or to join, please contact Tonita at email@example.com. We often put details on our Facebook page as well, so do keep an eye out!
The long-awaited update of YAYAS 1971 publication ‘Roman York a pictorial guide’ is now available. ‘The Making of Roman York’ is a much enhanced, totally updated book of over 200 lavishly illustrated colour pages.
This brand new book includes all the latest information including the discovery and display of The Ryedale Hoard in 2022.
For details of how to purchase this and other YAYAS publications please visit the ‘Publications’ page.
Ian Drake and Paul Chrystal's title, York 100 Years Ago is published on 20th October 2021, and will be available to buy at lectures and from YAYAS directly - please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
YAYAS' Council's very own Catherine Sotheran has published this lovely companion to several walks around the York the tourists miss! Perfect for planning your post-lockdown wanders!
"York in close up - the walks" takes you on a wander round many of York's streets and lesser known areas showing you lots of little details which often go unnoticed. There is a circular route around the centre which is split in to 4 parts and 3 stand alone walks which take you a bit further out.
The paperback book is A5 and wire bound so the pages fold back and make it a very convenient size to carry around. It contains 80 pages with over 1000 photos. The price is £15 + £2.50 p&p, purchase it from Catherine at https://www.facebook.com/catherine.sotheran
or email us at YAYAS for more information if you're not a Facebooker!
