Monday 4th – Friday 8th of March 2019
Presented by Stefani Blackmore and Erin Finnegan of Environmental Resource Management (ERM)
This 5-day workshop will provide participants with the opportunity to be involved in an urban archaeological excavation at one of South Australia’s most iconic state heritage-listed sites, Z ward for the Criminally Insane at Glenside Hospital.
This is a practical, hands-on workshop will introduce participants to some of the issues encountered when undertaking excavation work at heritage-listed properties and will acquaint you with the key methods employed in archaeological heritage management. It also covers some of the key factors in heritage building conservation and management.
The workshop focuses on the process of heritage resource management, from project inception and basic archaeological assessment, to a true ‘field experience’ with site test-trenching led by professional archaeologists. The aim is to teach participants to think strategically about project design, project implementation, and project management.
Cost: $1900 per person (includes materials, PPE, lunch and refreshments)
