The Great YAC Bake Off!

Hi everyone. I’m sure you all remember back in July we asked for club members to bake cakes to sell at the launch of the Festival of Leicestershire and Rutland Archaeology at Jewry Wall. It was a fantastic day. We really managed to ‘Bring Our Past to Life’ and a big thank you to all who baked and attended the event.


A little out of his depth, YAC leader Mathew found himself compering a fashion-show through the ages!

The aim of our Great YAC Bake Off was to raise money for the Dig Deep For YAC campaign and I am pleased to announce we raised £104.50 from our cake sale.

We were really impressed with everyone’s contributions and it was really really hard to pick a winner. We had everything from castle-shaped sponges, medieval floor tile rice-crispy cakes, chocolate brownie excavations and ginger loaf cake graves!

As none of the Club leaders could choose between such fantastic cakes we recruited a celebrity judge, Dr Richard Buckley from the University of Leicester (the archaeologist who lead the search for Richard III), who choose this fantastic amazing archaeological excavation cake. Congratulations to Reuben Cullup, our YAC Master Baker 2016!


Our winning cake!

ArchaeoQuest 2015 a huge success!!!

Leicestershire Young Archaeologists “Dig Deep for YAC!” and raise £450.

Fantastic News!  We have finished collecting money raised by all our fantastic YAC’s who undertook the ArchaeoQuest challenge during our visit to Bradgate Park at the end of June and we are delighted to announce that we have smashed our target by raising just over £450!  This is a fantastic figure and we would like to send a huge thank you to all our YAC’s and supporters who have helped us to raise this amount.  The Just Giving page is still active if you know anyone else who would like to pledge money to further help “Dig Deep for YAC!”
