EXPRESSION OF INTEREST from Undergraduate students studying Archaeology at the School of Social Science
Applications for cross-institutional study for students from other Australian universities will be considered. 

The Archaeology Field School will run for one week from Sunday 16th June until Sunday 23rd June 2024.

The one-week field school will involve a combination of academic study and field practice. Providing training in landscape archaeology, it will focus on understanding how people have engaged with landscapes over the past, and how these landscapes have been modified through natural and cultural processes. The focus will be on documenting Aboriginal cultural landscapes on the Macleay Valley of the mid North Coast of New South Wales. The Clybucca Historic precinct contains the largest temperate midden complex in Australia, and we will remap these sites to help better understand their significance with the aim of laying the initial groundwork to undertake a longer term research project. A heavy emphasis of the course will be working closely with Aboriginal Traditional Owners from the Macleay Valley, particularly the Ngambaa Traditional Owners. Students will develop field and investigative skills that will enable them to record and interpret the archaeological record and to ultimately tell the story of the landscape.
