About this event
Join expert panellists as they explore issues in contemporary archaeological practice. Is the pursuit of archaeology motivated solely by curiosity about our historic and prehistoric past, as it once was? Does it have tangible value? This Canberra Archaeology Society – Australasian Society for Historical Archaeology event is part of the ACT and Region Heritage Festival. The event will feature 4 speakers, followed by a Q&A session (details below).
