Niche Environment and Heritage is proud to be a sponsor of this year’s Australian Archaeological Association (AAA) conference, an important event for the archaeological community in Australia and an excellent opportunity for our own team’s professional development.
The theme of this year’s conference is Disrupting Paradise: The Archaeology of the Driest Inhabited Continent on Earth and the program includes two presentations from Niche consultants.
Dr Xavier Carah from Niche’s Brisbane office will present Ravenswood Minors – Identifying children on an 1860s Queensland goldfield. In his presentation Xavier will discuss how artefacts discovered at burial sites – that were exhumed as part of a larger Niche project – provide an insight into the lives and deaths of children in the early years of the goldfields. Read more about the Ravenswood project here.
Dr Morgan Disspain from our Coffs Harbour base will explore the significant cultural, social, environmental, spiritual, and economic connections of Bininj (Aboriginal) people to water sources and djenj (fish) in Kakadu and West Arnhem Land. Her presentation is entitled Djenj Mankarre: Bininj Fishing Past, Present and Future.
