Events, Meet the Archaeologists Night

ArchSoc Presents – About Time: South Australia’s History Festival and National Archaeology Week

ArchSoc’s events for the 2012 About Time: South Australia’s History Festival and National Archaeology Week are coming up in the next few weeks.

We kick off NAW with the Community Archaeology Day at the Plympton Railway Station on Sunday 20th May, where we will have a sausage sizzle and demonstrate site survey techniques to the public. Find the flyer for this event here: CommArchDay. On Tuesday 22nd May in the Plaza at Flinders, we will be having a sausage sizzle from 11am. We end National Archaeology Week with the Meet the Archaeologists! Night at the Flinders Victoria Square building. See the flyer here: MTAN. And the program here: MTANProgram.

Since the launch of the About Time website, our events have consistently been in the most popular events listing, often as first and second most popular out of over 500 events. Continue reading “ArchSoc Presents – About Time: South Australia’s History Festival and National Archaeology Week”

News

February 2012 Update

Uni is starting up for another year and we have recruited our first batch of members during ‘o’ week. The archaeology department here at Flinders held their annual awards ceremony and ‘Meet the New Graduates’ BBQ. ArchSoc helped with catering this event; it was very enjoyable. We were able to recruit 26 members at this event (not including our life-member, Vincent Megaw!).

Membership is open to everybody, undergraduates, graduates, staff, industry, affiliates and other interested individuals. Join ArchSoc by contacting one of the executive or attending an event. To increase our member base from as early as possible, ArchSoc decided to lower the membership fee to $10 for the first two weeks of uni. The regular price will apply after the 2nd of March.

During week 1, ArchSoc will have a stall in the Humanities Courtyard outside of RM 112 at Flinders between 9am and 3pm.

By 3pm Tuesday 28th February, we had 50 members; our goal for 2012 is 100 members! So a big thank you to all those that have already signed up and for those that are thinking of doing so, please come and meet us.

We have just approved and finalised two events that coincide with National Archaeology Week and About Time: SA History Month in May 2012. Details of these events will be advertised on this site as well as here: http://www.abouttime.sa.gov.au/ closer to the date

Look out for us in the SA History Month Magazine!!
