Archaeology Seminar Series : MAAWA's Port Gregory investigation Other events...
MAAWA has been investigating Port Gregory for many years in association with the WA Maritime Museum. The rationale for the port is embedded in the story of the 1847 discovery of galena by the Gregory brothers in their survey of the West Australian northern regions. The extensive infrastructure that developed from this discovery included Port Gregory, a convict establishment at Lynton, steam power, roadworks, the first government railway, a smelter at Warribano, tramways, Indigenous engagement and all signalled the state's first mining boom. This presentation possessed significant land history for a MAAWA investigation.
