This symposium, which is aimed at a general audience, is associated with a current CMAG exhibition – Backyard Archaeology – and will include case studies from the ACT region and a panel discussion on the idea of ‘backyard archaeology – everyone can do it!’ 

The presentations aim to raise awareness of archaeology, history, and horticulture in local contexts and of personal importance (as opposed to the grand and the best). They will show how backyard studies can reveal and inspire stories of everyday life through found and excavated objects and nurtured gardens. 

The Symposium will appeal to people interested in family history research and creating place history narratives.

The Symposium is supported by the Canberra Museum + Gallery, University of Canberra ‘Everyday Heritage Project’, and Australian Archaeological Association.

This is a National Archaeology Week event.
