Events, Meet the Archaeologists Night

Meet the Archaeologists Night

Last year over 80 people attended MTAN and learnt about historical archaeology, maritime archaeology, Indigenous archaeology, contemporary archaeology and world archaeology from South Australian archaeologists. This year will no doubt be as successful, insightful and entertaining.

Meet the Archaeologists Night is an evening of presentations by South Australian archaeologists, including maritime, historical and Indigenous archaeology. Audience members can have the chance to meet the presenters and ask questions about their research and the exciting projects they have been involved with. Details about presenters will be released soon.

People of all ages welcome. Bookings are required.

Meet the Archaeologists! 2012

ArchSoc’s Meet the Archaeologists! realised its claim of being the most popular event listed in the About Time: SA History Festival program. Over 80 people braved the cold, wet and windy weather to enjoy a night of archaeological conversation at the Flinders University Victoria Square building.

ArchSoc’s own Antoinette Hennessy performed brilliantly as MC for the night and introduced our presenters:

James Hunter (maritime archaeology).

Heather Burke (historical archaeology).

Jordan Ralph and Rachael Willika (Indigenous archaeology).

Alice Gorman (contemporary/space archaeology).

Claire Smith (world archaeology).
