Archaeology Seminar : Public Archaeology in Western Australia: Kings Square Archaeological Excavation Other events...
In mid-January 2018 archaeologists from Archae-aus commenced excavating the remains of 19th and 20th Century buildings that once sat in Kings Square. The work was conducted on behalf of the City of Fremantle as preparatory works for the Kings Square Renewal Project which includes the demolition of the current Council offices, the construction of new offices and landscaping. Historical research identified that in three locations within the footprint of the proposed new building and landscaping that there was a high likelihood of building foundations dating from 1840 to 1900 under the current pavers and grass in Kings Square. These buildings included a church, hall, shops and workshops. The City of Fremantle, before the excavation commenced committed to the public display and incorporation of archaeological features into the new building. In this seminar we will discuss the initial results of the excavations, examine the role of public archaeology in relation to connecting communities and our experiences in excavating under the public gaze.
