Archaeology Matters

President and Trustees

The Council is run by a board of trustees on behalf of the membership. Trustees are elected by the CBA's members and report back to members at twice-yearly meetings held at various locations around the UK.

All CBA officers and trustees can be contacted via the CBA secretariat in York.
