Description
Overview This fieldschool provides a unique opportunity for students to undertake 'community' archaeology in Australia. Students will have the chance to learn field-based archaeological skills, while at the same time developing other practical and personal skills necessary to conduct archaeological research with Aboriginal communities. In particular, students will focus on the recording of rock art in its wider cultural context. The fieldschool may involve some seminars, and informal interactions with Barunga and Wugullar community members, and will also be directed towards in-depth practical recording skills necessary for rock art research in an archaeological framework. Students who have completed a previous Rock Art Field School are required to undertake this topic at a different site, and with a different Aboriginal community, than they have worked with previously. Fees will be charged to cover such things as transport, accommodation and food depending on the location of the field school. Students should consult the topic coordinator before enrolling. * Archaeological site recording * Rock art recording * Ethnographic methods * Indigenous Australian art and culture * Archaeology and ethics
