Community Archaeology Field School 2016

Flinders Arch

6 to 12 July 2016

This topic will develop students' abilities to participate in community archaeology work in both an Indigenous and non-Indigenous context.  Students will be required to employ skills to an advanced level, which may include those related to site and artefact recording, mapping, collecting oral histories, and ethical interactions with community members, as appropriate to the community archaeology context.

Community Archaeology Field School will be held in Barunga, in the Northern Territory.

Barunga is located approximately 80km south east of the town of Katherine in the Northern Territory.  It hosts an annual Sports and Culture Festival and is home to people from a range of different language groups.  The Barunga-Wugularr area belongs to the Bugula clan lands of the Jawoyn Aboriginal people.
