The Royal Australian Historical Society in conjunction with the Independent Scholars Association of Australia (ISAA) presents: A Walk Through Time and the Archives

Laurieton, NSW, n.d. [State Library of New South Wales, FL1703272]

Laurieton, NSW, n.d. [State Library of New South Wales, FL1703272]

This lecture will explore the archival research undertaken by Dr Diane Solomon Westerhuis to complete a detailed heritage study of Laurieton, NSW. Diane’s study began with a contemporary census of the old main street, in which every site and building in the street was described and placed in its historical context. From that census, a narrative emerged: a chronology of the village and its surrounds over time. This narrative is sustained by varied archival evidence which links sites, buildings or archaeological remains in the street to historic events and people. Using diverse archival material, it is possible then to walk up the main street and describe events and circumstances of the village and its surrounds over time.

About the speaker: Dr Diane Solomon Westerhuis is an independent researcher, writer and editor. She has worked as a history teacher, researcher and university lecturer, at James Cook University in Townsville and Charles Sturt University at Bathurst. Her teaching and research subjects have included archaeology, history, criminology, sociology and social research methods.
