Home / About Us

The Council for British Archaeology Wales group is a charity that serves to promote interest in the historic environment of Wales and to bring together those interested in Welsh archaeology.

CBA Wales campaigns for the local heritage of Wales and supports local groups such as the Young Archaeologists Club.

The committee meets four times a year, with the Annual General Meeting in October and a Business Meeting in the spring.

CBA Wales also produces Archaeology in Wales, the journal on recent archaeological discoveries relating to Wales. The journal is free to subscribing members and is produced on an annual basis. It includes a gazetteer of recent archaeological work undertaken in Wales as well as longer contributions. We welcome contributions of all sizes from all organisations with an interest in recent archaeological work in Wales.

If you have any questions regarding the organisation or are interested in contributing to Archaeology in Wales, please contact Kathy Laws, at kathy.laws@hotmail.co.uk

For membership enquiries, please contact our Membership Secretary, Kathy Laws, at kathy.laws@hotmail.co.uk

2020 CBA Wales Spring Meeting and Public Events

It will come as no surprise to our members that we are postponing our usual Spring meeting and forthcoming events due to the current situation with COVID 19 and coronavirus. We had an interesting programme lined up for this period and we are very sad that we will not have the opportunity to share the wonderful archaeology of Wales with you all.

The news is not all bleak, however – in line with the government advice to continue to get regular exercise, on your daily walk or run you might want to consider visiting or researching your local heritage sites (whilst continuing to respect social distancing of course!). Our Archaeology in Wales bumper 2 year issue should either be already with you or on its way. There are also plenty of UK resources online and the CBA is sharing these so that people of all ages can continue to engage with archaeology from home. Access these via our blog (http://blog.archaeologyuk.org/). For those with younger family members (or for those who are just young at heart) the Young Archaeologists’ Club website has many fun and exciting things to do (https://www.yac-uk.org/things-to-do).

Finally, here on the CBA Wales website, we are signposting links to online archaeology resources for Wales
