Archaeology Field School Description


This topic will teach students how to undertake ethical and culturally sensitive ethnoarchaeological research. Activities may include rock art recording, site recording, artefact recording, collecting oral histories, and ethical interactions with Indigenous groups.

Themes explored will include:
• Art and landscape.
• Aboriginal people in their environments.
• The sophistication of Aboriginal social systems.
• Aboriginal relationship to place.
• Aboriginal knowledge systems.

The field school will be run in two locations in 2010: at Timber Creek, near the NT/WA border, with the Ngaliwurru-Wuli Association, and in Darwin, the capital of the Northern Territory, with members of the Larrakia community. This field school will provide a unique opportunity for learning and personal growth in the context of sharing daily life with Indigenous Australians.
