Archaeology Field School Location

In 2014 the Community Archaeology Field School will be held in Barunga, in the Northern Territory.

Barunga is located approximately 80km south east of the town of Katherine in the Northern Territory. It hosts an annual Sports and Culture Festival and is home to people from a range of different language groups. The Barunga-Wugularr area belongs to the Bugula clan lands of the Jawoyn Aboriginal people.

The Barunga region is rich in rock art and famous nationally for the Barunga Statement: a national Aboriginal political request written on bark and presented to Prime Minister Bob Hawke in 1988. The Barunga Statement called for Aboriginal self-management, a national system of land rights, compensation for loss of lands, respect for Aboriginal identity, an end to discrimination, and the granting of full civil, economic, social and cultural rights.
