Dig into an archaeological ‘Lunchtime Liaison’ with Richard Offen, Executive Director Heritage Perth during National Archaeology Week.

When archaeology is mentioned, people immediately conjure up images of scenes from ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’, with eccentrically dressed people scrabbling around in the sand to find long-lost artefacts. However, in reality, there is more to archaeology than artefacts found buried or hidden.

Attitudes to the conservation of heritage structures have changed over the last two hundred years.

This FREE talk will chart the history of the care of historic buildings and show how archaeology now plays a vital part in ‘conservation at work’.

This is a FREE Heritage Perth event but bookings are essential.
