Archaeology Field School Description

Students who have completed a previous Indigenous Archaeology Field School can only undertake a second if it is at a different site and with a different Aboriginal community.

In 2014 the ARCH8803/8809 field school will be run as part of a the Ngadjuri Heritage Project (NHP), a co-ordinated approach by the Ngadjuri Nation to the research, planning and management of key areas and regions in Ngadjuri land. It has the following specific aims:

Identify and record Aboriginal sites on Ngadjuri Land.
Integrate this data with data collected over the last two years of the project (funded by the National Heritage Program) to develop a database of site locations for the region.
Augment the above data with ethnographic and historic data on site use and significance through the conduct of archival research and oral histories.
Use a GIS program to pull these different forms of information together to develop cultural maps for the region.

The cumulative outcomes of this research are:

The development of a significant database of Ngadjuri heritage sites.
An overall strategic cultural heritage management framework for Ngadjuri lands.
