Excavating the Future: Archaeology and Technology : UWA Archaeology Department celebrates National Archaeology Week on 17 May Other events...
The UWA Archaeology Department invites you to join us to celebrate National Archaeology Week on Saturday, 17 May.

What do archaeologists actually do? How do archaeologists use cutting-edge technology in their research? What kind of archaeological research goes on at UWA? How can you even become an archaeologist yourself?!

Come along to a relaxed day of short talks, a picnic/fieldwork lunch and lab tours, where you’ll find out the answers to all these questions and more.

Our speakers will cover topics including: An Introduction to Australian Archaeology; Archaeology and Graffiti; Just what is Geoarchaeology?; The Australian Historic Shipwrecks Protection Project; Desert Rock Art: Dating the Dreamtime; Caesar and GIS.

The morning of talks will be followed by a picnic lunch organised by the Archaeology Society of Western Australia (at a small charge) and optional tours of our archaeology lab facilities here at UWA.
Speaker(s) Fiona Hook, Ass/Prof Sven Ouzman, Dr Ingrid Ward, W/Prof Peter Veth, W/Prof Jo McDonald, Ass/Prof Tom Whitley
