Upcoming Events

Coronavirus Outbreak

Sadly, due to the outbreak, YAYAS have

taken the decision to cancel the March,

April and May lectures. The AGM is to be

confirmed, but will probably need to be an

online meeting. We have not made this

decision lightly but in light of government

advice and YAYAS' membership

demographic, we felt it was our duty to protect vulnerable members.

We know that YAYAS is a social club for many and that there are people who will miss the interaction enjoyed at the lectures. If this is the case for you, please consider joining our Facebook page, where members can meet virtually to discuss  all things archaeology and architecture!

Please stay safe everyone and we'll keep you posted about future lectures and excursions.

New Publications!

In cheerier news, YAYAS is pleased to announce that we will soon be able to provide you with some fresh reading material with which to while away the hours in lockdown. A reprint of the extremely popular Hugh Murray, Photographs and Photographers of York, the Early Years, 1844-1879 will also soon be available for £11.99.

Our very own Paul Chrystal, Editor of the York Historian, and council member Ian Drake have been very busy! They have no fewer than three(!) titles coming out in the next few months - you saw it first here! For details on how to purchase these exciting new titles, visit our publications page here.

York: A Rare Insight has received an excellent review as well - check it out here!
