Archaeology Seminar Series : Tibradden Station: An Archaeological Investigation Other events...
This project aims to investigate the historical functions associated with the structures present at the site of Tibradden Station. Founded in 1852 by John S. Davis, Tibradden was one of the earliest pastoral settlements in the Champion Bay District (modern day Geraldton), and is an exemplary example of rural practices of the mid-19th Century in the region. While most of the original buildings still remain on the site, there are a handful of structures which are either no longer existent, or whose original functions have been lost after having been repurposed over time. Using a combination of historical photos and documentation, structural remains, and analyses of the artefacts recovered during excavations, this project aims to identify what structures were present on the site during its earlier years, and what their purposes were. The information recovered during this process will not only add directly to the body of knowledge relating to the history of this recently state listed heritage site, but will also be helpful in assessing its archaeological potential and providing guidance for future works.
