Artefact Supports National Archaeology Week 15 to 21 May 2022

National Archaeology Week aims to increase public awareness of Australian archaeology and the work of Australian archaeologists both at home and abroad, and to promote the importance of protecting Australia’s unique archaeological heritage.

Held in the third week of May, this nationwide program of events and activities includes public lectures, seminars, exhibitions, demonstration excavations, displays, and other events designed to engage with the general public.

Sandra Wallace, Managing Director at Artefact, said this when interviewed by Eleven Media, “The support of National Archaeology Week held in the third week of May each year is special to us as it is an opportunity to contribute to the understanding and importance of Archaeology to our nation. We are delighted to have two of our team as speakers. Michael Lever, Heritage Consultant (Aboriginal Archaeology) and Dr Iain Stuart, Principal (Major Projects).”

These are the topics, times and Sydney locations that the two Artefact Heritage Services speakers will be presenting:
