ARCA2603 - Archaeology of Sydney

Semester 1, 2012  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Martin David Gibbs


Beneath the surface of the large, vibrant city we call Sydney lie many remains of our Indigenous and colonial past. The unit provides an introduction to ways that archaeology, in conjunction with documentary and other evidence, can be used to provide new interpretations of Sydney's hidden past. Histories of the Sydney region revealed through archaeological research are placed in the broader context of the history and archaeology of European and British colonial expansion after AD1500.
