History and archaeology – meaning and management

Workshop details

This workshop will be presented by Dr Mac North and Sydney-based heritage practitioners.

Topics to be covered include how to undertake historical research, where to find archival and documentary sources of information regarding a place, why understanding the history of a place is critical to understanding its significance and how history and archaeology work together. The archaeological section will focus on processes of archaeological site formation, the techniques for researching an archaeological place, the different types of archaeological sites typically found in Australia and how such places should be managed either in their own right, or in the context of a construction or development project.

The main presenter, Dr Mac North, is an archaeologist and heritage consultant with nearly 20 years experience working in Australia.

Proceeds after costs of this workshop to the APT Longford Academy and student scholarship fund.
