ItemSummer School in Archaeology 1977/78 Victoria Archaeological Survey(Australian Archaeological Association, 1977-11)The venue for the school this year is the Kulki-Kulki Swan District Camp at Wood Wood, on the Murray, northwest of Swan Hill . The school will run from November 26 until January 8, 1978. Students will receive daily lectures in excavation, experience in handling materials in our laboratory, and experience in recording archaeological sites.
ItemMiddens of the Central Coast, New South Wales(Australian Archaeological Association, 1977-11)A survey between Budgewoi and Avoca has already received a brief report (Stockton 1972). In 1975-6 this survey was extended north and south to include all the coastline between Lake Macquarie and Broken Bay. Between Broken Bay and Port Hacking urban development renders similar survey impossible, while published material for excavations in the Sydney area and further south is quite considerable. However, for comparative purposes, I have looked at sites in North Harbour (Port Jackson) and the Royal National Park. All these sites can be mentioned only briefly here, but individual site reports are held by the Australian Institute of Aboriginal Studies and the National Parks and Wildlife Service.
ItemExcavations at Port Arthur, 1977(Australian Archaeological Association, 1977-11)This site was investigated as part of a wide-ranging programme of research at Port Arthur. Its importance lies in the fact that it is the only part of Port Arthur continuously occupied during its entire convict period and by such large groups of people. Even so documentation about it is fairly minimal; the plans are largely inconsistent and incomplete and there appear to be more proposed than actual plans in existence. If one was testing the archaeological potential of a site in Port Arthur, it seemed that this would be the best area to choose.
ItemPipeline survey of Aboriginal relics in Northwestern New South Wales and Southwestern Queensland.(Australian Archaeological Association, 1977-11)Preparatory to the laying of the natural gas pipeline from Moomba to Sydney, a survey of Aboriginal sites along the route was called for. Sites were recorded, worked stone collected, potential for further research noted and the pipeline authority alerted of the danger to significant sites . The survey was able to observe the effect (greater than anticipated) of flooding and wind erosion on sites over one year. Detailed field reports of the two surveys are lodged with the Australian Institute of Aboriginal Studies, but it was thought useful to publish a preliminary report indicating site density and typology, the distribution of the principal tool types and the potential for more detailed investigation.
