At Home and Down the Pub: Working Class Archaeology in Tasmania

Lane Cove Historical Society’s monthly meeting falls during National Archaeology Week and will feature guest speakers from the University of Sydney’s Archaeology Department. Join Dr James Flexner, Pamela Chauvel and Amelia O’Donnell as they focus on the excavations at Triabunna and Maria Island.
