Event description

Description

Archae-aus, a cultural heritage management consultancy based in North Fremantle, have been appointed by City of Fremantle to undertake archaeological investigations for the Kings Square redevelopment project. Kings Square has undergone many changes since it was established in 1833. Archaeological excavations will be undertaken in areas between High Street and Newman Court. Archaeologists will be looking for evidence of the 1840s predecessor to the current St John’s Church, that used to stand in the centre of the Square. The archaeologists expect to unearth the earlier church foundations as well as historical material from the late 1800s. These will shed new light into what life was like in Fremantle during the early nineteenth century.

Archae-aus will run free daily talks and a tour of the historical archaeology of Kings Square from Monday 15th January to Sunday 21 January 2018 at 12:00 pm. Plase book a free ticket as there are limited places for the talk each day.
