Artefacts Workshop – 21 May 2016

????????????????????????????????????

In this ‘hands on’ workshop participants handled and interpreted artefacts found by archaeologists at the The Big Dig site. They found out what happens to the artefacts after the digging is done, and explored what over a million artefacts recovered from The Big Dig archaeological site in The Rocks reveal about life in 19th century Sydney.

This workshop was presented on Saturday 21st May 2016 in collaboration with Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority and as part of the National Trust Heritage Festival 2016.
