Ancient Australia at HTAV

I will be presenting a seminar on Ancient Australia at the HTAV Middle Years Conference on Friday 25 October at 1:30pm.

This session discusses Ancient Australia in archaeological terms. Explore the ‘history’ of Ancient Australia through its changing climate and environment and how this impacted upon lifestyles and land use. Get tips on how to practically apply the depth study unit Ancient Australia, with a different approach to history and a fascinating new archaeological case study. While the session has a Year 7 focus, any teachers interested in Indigenous archaeology are invited to attend.
