CBA Yorkshire Evening Talks

In these Covid times we are all missing the company of our friends and colleagues, and the chance to catch up and chat about our hobbies and our interests. Sadly, it appears we wont be able to do that together for some time, So instead why not join us for the CBA Yorkshire Evening Talks? Every 2 weeks throughout winter we are hosting a short talk on subjects focussed on Archaeology and History, followed by a friendly open discussion. All in the comfort of your own home, linked by the magic of ZOOM. The Programme is below.

To join a session please email and the link will be emailed back to you. Attendance via Zoom at the Talks is free, and open to all, although we would encourage those who are interested in the whole series to join CBA Yorkshire by emailing

It only costs £12.50 (£15 for Groups & Families) per annum and will ensure you are first to learn of forthcoming events
