Archaeology Field School Location

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.

Archaeology Field School Description


The fieldschool may involve some seminars, and informal interactions with Barunga and Wugullar community members, and will also be directed towards in-depth practical recording skills necessary for rock art research in an archaeological framework.

Students who have completed a previous Rock Art Field School are required to undertake this topic at a different site, and with a different Aboriginal community, than they have worked with previously.

Fees will be charged to cover such things as transport, accommodation and food depending on the location of the field school. Students should consult the topic coordinator before enrolling.
