Description
Community archaeology has an important focus on community participation, training, capacity building and outreach. At Flinders our Community Archaeology field school is often organised around community requests for assistance to document, record, preserve and manage important aspects of their local heritage. This topic will develop students' abilities to participate in community archaeology work in both an Indigenous and non-Indigenous context. Students will be required to employ skills to an advanced level, which may include those related to site and artefact recording, mapping, collecting oral histories, and ethical interactions with community members, as appropriate to the community archaeology context.
