Volunteers on our Port Arthur lab work have (hopefully) departed this morning for a week of artefact cataloging with the Port Arthur Historic Sites Management Authority (PAHSMA). A lot of consultation, organisation and fund raising went into making this trip a reality, so thanks to all those that made it possible. A very big thank you to Annita and David from PAHSMA for hosting us. Hopefully ArchSoc will continue to work with PAHSMA in the future. Our volunteers will be blogging about their time in Port Arthur over the next week, so stay tuned 🙂
The week-long Archaeological Field Methods field school at Redbanks (Mallala) starts today as well! It’s great to see so many Flinders archaeology students getting some hands-on experience.
Good luck to everyone involved in field work this season and condolences to those stuck at their desks, perhaps the July field season will be kinder to you!
