NSW: Archaeomeet 2016

Event Details

The Archaeomeet conference will be an opportunity for teachers to interact with students, tertiary academics and professional archaeologists, to enhance their knowledge of the contribution made by Australian archaeologists to our shared history and heritage.

A variety of different formal lectures, informal discussion groups, hands-on workshops and historic walks will be available for teachers. There will be a special emphasis on providing teachers with practical and tangible resources and strategies that can be used in the classroom,

For those unable to attend the conference, the sessions will be streamed online, and for a reduced fee, teachers will be able to subscribe and view the sessions from the conference.


The archaeological community has long appreciated the importance of the inclusion of Australian archaeology and prehistory in school curricula, and thus we are pleased to announce that many of Australia’s most pre-eminent archaeologists and academics will be presenting at Archaeomeet 2016. This is an unrivalled opportunity for educators to learn from those at the pointy end of the trowel, so to speak. The list of presenters includes Professor Paul Tacon, Dr Louise Zarmati, Professor Peter Hiscock, Associate Professor Martin Gibbs, Associate Professor Darren Curnoe, Dr Judith Field, Dr Dan Rosendahl, Dr Sally May, Dr Janine Major, Dr Alice Gorman, Dr Jonathan Benjamin and the list continues to grow each week!
