AUSTRALASIAN SOCIETY FOR HISTORICAL ARCHAEOLOGY
The Australian Society for Historical Archaeology (ASHA) was founded in 1970 to promote the study of historical archaeology in Australia. In 1991 the Society was expanded to include New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific region generally, and its name was changed to the Australasian Society for Historical Archaeology.
Triabunna Field School, TasmaniaAs reported previously this 2nd field work season was to be undertaken by Dr Ash Lenton, ANU, for undergraduates from there but also from the University of Sydney, in January and February 2017. It was to focus on the investigation of a military barracks which serviced the adjacent Maria Island convict settlement in the 1840’s.
Explore Red Hill Camp
In 2016 Ngunnawal and Ngambri families worked with ANU archaeology students and local residents to uncover the Aboriginal history of a small park in Manuka. The upcoming Heritage Week event, Explore Red Hill Camp: Canberra’s ‘Last Ngunnawal Campsite’ will focus on the outcomes of the Red Hill Camp excavation (2016) which was undertaken by Steve Skitmore of ANU, and will explore the stories of the site through a short walk and a story-telling journey with Ngunnawal and Ngambri elders.
It will be free and held at 3.00-4.30pm on Saturday 22 April 2017 at the Corner Durville Crescent & Flinders Way /77 Flinders Way, Griffith, ACT.
