Sydney Historical Archaeology Practitioners 2021

Archaeology: On the Edge

With over 75% of the population no longer living in the traditional heart of Sydney, the spread of development has led to many of us now working in areas long considered to be the edge of Sydney. The Sydney Historical Archaeology Practitioners’ (SHAP) Workshop is an opportunity for heritage practitioners from professional consultancies and Government to join students, academics and those with an interest in historical archaeology to gather and discuss advances in historical archaeology and interesting results from excavations undertaken over the last year across the wider Sydney area. Call for Papers SHAP is an ideal place to present papers for both students, recent graduates and new consultants and we particularly welcome any requests to present from first-time speakers. Austral also continues to welcome expressions of interest to present papers on this topic whether it relates to projects of interest, the use of cutting-edge technology on site, or theoretical considerations regarding the fringes of society.
