Welcome to Ask the Archaeologist!

With the launch of the new Australian Curriculum, teachers have some exciting history topics to cover, but sometimes the textbooks lack the information we need most, especially for areas like the ‘Ancient Australia’ depth studies at Year 7.

That’s why I started this blog – to assist teachers (and students) with their Australian Curriculum archaeology studies.

Posts on Ask the Archaeologist will include answers to your questions, as well as interesting archaeology news and facts, and information relevant to the Australian Curriculum.

Even though Ask the Archaeologist has an Australian Curriculum focus, you are most welcome to submit any sort of archaeology or history question.
