The Archaeology of Sydney Research Group (ASRG) is a joint initiative between University of Sydney academics, professional archaeologists and researchers. We are interested in exploring, developing, recording and preserving Sydney's archaeology.
Our work ranges across several broad themes as well as specific projects.
An initiative of the Archaeology of Sydney Research Group in partnership with University of Sydney Library, the project is part-funded by the Department of Planning (NSW) and the New South Wales Heritage Council.
Co-directed by Dr Sarah Colley and Dr Martin Gibbs, we created a sustainable, digital archive of information about the archaeology and heritage of important cultural places in NSW.
Other researchers, archaeologists and the public can explore this archive, enabling unprecedented access to materials not otherwise found in public archives.
We are a joint initiative between staff from the Department of Archaeology and the School of Philosophical and Historical Inquiry, as well as professional archaeologists and researchers. Meet our steering group:
