Membership of the YAHS

There are several different categories of YAHS membership.

Individuals can become Full Members and attend lectures and excursions, use our library and archive collections available through the University of Leeds, and receive the annual Yorkshire Archaeological Journal, programme of events, newsletters and other mailings. Mailings are normally issued by email, but can be sent by post.  Full Members can choose not to subscribe to the Journal and pay a reduced subscription.

Societies and Groups - Other archaeological and historical societies and groups with similar aims to the YAHS can apply to become Affiliated Societies.  Details of the events organised by Affiliated Societies are published annually in the YAHS Programme of Events and members of Affiliated Societies are eligible to apply to use the Society's library (and the wider holdings of the Leeds University Library) for reference purposes. In addition, the YAHS encourages joint events to our mutual benefit. The following list has links to the web sites of most of our affiliates.

Institutions - open to Universities, Colleges, Libraries and other such groups. They receive one copy of the Journal. This arrangement is handled on the Society's behalf by the publishers Taylor and Francis.

Membership runs from 1 January to 31st December each year, and subscriptions are due in January. A list of subscription prices and an applcation form for membership is available here (YAHS plus Sections) and here (Section membership only).

For information on the special interest Sections, please see the 'Sections' page. These can be joined in addition to YAHS or separately.
