Archaeological excavations at the new Parramatta metro station site commenced in 2022 and is being undertaken in stages through to the end of 2025. Comprising almost an entire city block in the heart of the CBD, the excavations so far have revealed evidence of environmental change, significant Aboriginal archaeology including contact-period artefacts, two convict huts, multiple phases of 19th-century domestic occupation, and local manufacturers and businesses. Post-excavation analysis is in its early stages, this talk explores some of the preliminary findings and artefacts from the site.

This event is in partnership with National Archaeology Week.

Event Date & Time: Wednesday, 22 May 2024 @ 6.00 pm – 7.30 pm
Event Location: History House, 133 Macquarie St, Sydney NSW 2000
