Our goal is to recognise the value of the subject and profession for all.

Canberra Archaeological Society building links with Schools

What the CAS is offering regional NSW and ACT Schools:

    • Activities include a guided walk to the Old Lands End Homestead in Weetangera – at 10.00 am-12.00 noon on Sat 25 May: https://www.canberraarchaeologicalsociety.com.au/oldlandsendwalk.html
    • Offer by Canberra archaeologists to visit classes – topics include:
      • Indigenous studies
      • ‘long history’ of Australia
      • archaeology of contemporary societies
      • archaeology of European societies.

It’s great that Isabel Dunn at Weetangera PS is soon hosting a visit to her Year 4 class by ANU archaeologists.

Our team is very happy to provide a link role with Dr Duncan Wright of the ANU and his archaeology colleagues: Christopher.Kenna@cit.edu.au and/or Duncan.Wright@anu.edu.au.

It is wonderful to have such a valuable partnership offering to help bring our units of work and fieldwork to life with expertise!
