Picture Library


YAT’s picture library contains a vast collection of video and photographs from over 40 years of archaeological activity. We are in the process of digitising our collection so keep checking back to see our ever-increasing catalogue of imagery.

If you are searching for something not currently found in the library, please fill in the form below and we will see if we have anything that matches your request in our archive. Please be aware, there maybe a charge for use of our images which will cover our administrative time and the type of license you require; these are outlined below.

Prices for individual images are as follows:

For publishers, media production companies and organisations wishing to use images for commercial purposes:

1 image – £100 + VAT per edition

For Students, Academics and Charitable Organisations:

No charge – however, charitable donations to York Archaeological Trust will be gratefully received. Please highlight your donation when you contact us.

To make a request for an image or images, email picturelibrary@yorkat.co.uk or fill in the form at the bottom of the page.
