Archaeology Field School Description


Community archaeology has an important focus on community participation, training, capacity building and outreach. At Flinders our Community Archaeology field school is often organised around community requests for assistance to document, record, preserve and manage important aspects of their local heritage.

This topic will develop students' abilities to participate in community archaeology work in both an Indigenous and non-Indigenous context. Students will be required to employ skills to an advanced level, which may include those related to site and artefact recording, mapping, collecting oral histories, and ethical interactions with community members, as appropriate to the community archaeology context.

There are no prerequisites for this fieldschool and we welcome applications from people of all nationalities and anyone over the age of 18.

Acceptance is not guaranteed however, as there may be limited places, so please apply early.

We would expect this fieldschool to be of particular interest to:
•Students of archaeology, anthropology, Indigenous studies, heritage studies and other related fields
•Members of the general public with an interest in Australian archaeology, including Indigenous Australian art and culture


Some level of fitness may be necessary depending on which sites we are working on.
